Thanks for using health care magic.
You should consult Physician first to rule out the causes of tachycardia and palpitation if any. there are many physical causes which must be ruled out.
anxiety is known to cause tachycardia and palpitation. but most times , it is associated with restlessness, fearfulness.
acidity is associated with reflux of food or burning sensation over abdomen.
please consult physician for cause.

Welcome to HCM

Strong heartbeats or palpitations immediately after eating and fear which is acute onset may occur due to either anxiety or gastric acidity.
In anxiety non specific symptoms of palpitations and fear are seen. I would advise you to please avoid spicy food for some time, take plenty of citrus juices and water. If no relief occurs and symptoms reoccur then most likely they are due to anxiety. Medicines like SSRI or SNRIs such as Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertaline or Venlafexine etc are very useful in anxiety. Please visit a Psychiatrist for proper evaluation.
