i was in a curry house over christmas and they offer a curry that is so hot that if you manage to eat it, you and your friend eat for nothing, drinks however must be paid for. i like my curries hot but didnt dare try this one. Its 5 time hotter than a phall i am told. A guy sitting not far from us made a feeble attempt at eating it but went white and sweaty after half of it. Has anyone ever tried this ? i believe they do it in most major cities in the uk.

I would be slightly worried if they brought it out on space shuttle re-entry tiles.....

there was a somali cafe in Manchester where the students used to attempt the hot challenge. If anyone ever achieved it, the chappy just put another handful of raw chilli in, to "up the ante". I would like to apologise to the poor b*****d who attempted it next after me. It must have been awful...it was tough for me and I was going through a north-west England style Tiger fal phase at the time, had drunk half of Boddington's 1989 output and was trying to impress my mess mates!

I remember that place (conveniently near MRI A & E), The Plaza on Upper Brook Street - never dared the suicide though.

Its all well and good impressing those around you but what a sorry state the next morning. i think its a natural progression to want hotter and hotter curries and can eat a phall whilst enjoying coronation st and a few cans.

I wonder how many of you who voted "Bring it on!" actually go and order korma 8O

I enjoy a hot curry, but it has to taste nice. There's no point in eating a curry that burns your lips (unless for a bet). Anyone can cook a hot curry, but cooking a hot curry that still has all the flavours/spices is a fine art.

i've been down the curry road....went as far as Tindaloo/Vindaloo/Fal(Phal?) and have ended up preferring Pathia and Silsila curries now...they have a real good taste and still produce the heat! :wink:

Murphy's pakora bar in Glasgow used to do a habanero chili pakora on thier buffet. Was hilarious to watch people who thought they were cherry tomatoes munch them.

I too used to go for the hot curries, such as phall but now go for something a little more flavoursome, such as madras or my favourite of ceylon. This is predominantly down to taste, but also I get IBS now if I eat anything too strong.

The trick to a strong curry though, is to drink milky coffee or tea with it, as the milk cleanses the spices from your mouth and throat.

anything with fat in it, as capsicum/ Capsaicin is only soluble in fat, which is why milk will always work better than water.

Always indulge in the raitas when eating curries :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raita
