    Question Should there be spaces between 2 brackets?

    Should there be spaces between 2 brackets?

    Example:

    A) Put the chilies (red color) (take from garden) into the pot and cook for 5 mins.

    B) Put the chilies (red color)(take from garden) into the pot and cook for 5 mins.

    It's not a good idea to put two sets of bracketed words next to each other but, if you do, there should be a space between them. Your example sentence is unnatural. We'd normally say something like "Put the red chillies from the garden into the pot and cook for five minutes".
