A New York Indian restaurant is serving up brave customers a seriously spicy curry dish that they claim is the hottest in the world.
Named the ‘Phaal Curry Challenge’, the Brick Lane Curry House in Manhattan’s East Village invites customers to chow down on a fiery hot meal containing ten of the world’s spiciest chillies.
The phaal curry is so spicy chefs have to wear GAS MASKS when preparing it.
The curry also contains the bhut jolokia chilli, which the Indian military is preparing to use in their famed ‘curry hand grenade’.
The curry measures one million Scovilles on the Scoville scale – used to measure the heat of chillis. In comparison Tobasco sauce measures 5000.
