My friend Geetha forwarded this article about the world’s hottest curry prepared by an Indian chef in a London restaurant.
The lamb curry named Bolly Burner, measures 855,000 on the Scoville scale – over 100 times hotter than the jalapeno pepper. He was inspired by the Andhra cuisine and uses Naga peppers and seeds.
From the article:
Before ordering the curry diners are required to sign a disclaimer saying they are aware of the nature and risks involved with tasting the curry before eating it.
This curry may not be on the menu everyday though.
… he said the Bollywood Burner may not regularly appear on the menu: “I would create it on demand for customers but will not include it all the time. I think it’s just too extreme a dish.”
The Bollywood Burner is being submitted to the Guinness World Records for verification of its status as the world’s hottest curry. The results should be announced in two to three weeks.
