Holy Fucking Shit, that’s a hot curry.

A restaurant in London has started serving what it claims is the world’s hottest curry. While I can’t verify that it is, indeed, the hottest curry in the world, I’m inclined to believe them.

It contains Naga chillies, which are rated at 800,000 or so Scoville units — for comparison a halapeno is rated at 8,000 and a Birdseye chilli (the little red ones) is rated at 100,000.

None of these chillies, however, can compare to the truly hot sauces of the world, which are listed on this page. The hottest I’ve had is the Death Sauce (rated at 1.1 million) and a single drop is enough to make your mouth burn for about half an hour. The so-called “sauces” go up as far as 16 million scoville units, at which point it’s actually just a single crystal of pure capsician. Bear in mind, also, that pepper spray is rated at 2 million scoville units.

Anyway, since the article doesn’t give a Scoville rating for the curry it’s not possible to tell exactly how hot it is. However, given how easy it would be to make an insanely hot curry if you put your mind to it, I’m prepared to believe that it’s probably pretty goddamn hot.

Now, if only there were a video of somebody eating it while jumping over something on a motorcycle…
