    Default Sharwoods Bhut Jolokia curry sauce

    Not sure if there's too many curry fans on here, but thought I'd post here in any event.

    I'm not usually a big fan of supermarket curry sauces, but Sharwoods have brought this new one out which comes with a warning and everything. I do like a good hot curry, so thought I'd give it a go, but having researched the chili in question I've become rather concerned that:

    "In northeastern India, the peppers are smeared on fences or incorporated in smoke bombs as a safety precaution to keep wild elephants at a distance" and, slightly more worryingly:

    "In 2009, scientists at India's Defence Research and Development Organisation announced plans to use the peppers in hand grenades, as a non lethal way to flush out terrorists from their hideouts and to control rioters. It will also be developed into pepper spray as a self defense product".

    So, yeah, I'm now a little more apprehensive about trying this weapon-based sauce. Has anybody else had any experience with it?

    You'll probably be alright eating it. Think about how much it hurts if you rub your eyes (or god-forbid, have a wank) after slicing regular bell peppers, and they're not even remotely hot to eat.
    When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail.

    If you want hot, you wanna try my Phal Curry. Tomato coulie, chicken, cumin, corriander and 30 finger chillies, 3 teaspoons of hot chilli powder, Tablespoon of pataks Madras curry paste and a tablespoon of ketchup. Knock your 'ead off mate.

    They really would, Indian wholesalers and the like have been selling them for a long time. Most people call them Naga or Naga Morich from the Bengali.

    If you look at the Scollville Scale, the only things that come above Naga are pepper spray, various Capsaicin varieties and pure Capsaicin. Dorset have grown Dorset naga for along time now, and are considered one of the hottest chilli's in the world.

    They're very sweet at first, similar to how Roquito is, then have a really over-powering heat which I can only compare to being bitten a couple of hundred times on the inside of your mouth.

    Odd recipe aside, this is correct. Phal is the sherriff of curry town
