A restaurant in Staffordshire has invented a recipe for what it claims to be world’s hottest curry.
The Dilshad in Chadsmoor has started serving ‘The Crocodile Inferno’ to its more adventurous customers, made from as you might expect crocodile meat and claiming it is twice as hot as pepper spray the police sometimes use. It is apparently so full of chilli that the chefs who prepare it have to wear safety equipment to stop them from being overpowered by the fumes.
Dilshad owner Tony Uddin said the curry was certainly not for chilli lightweights.
“I believe this could be the hottest curry in the world,” he said. “The crocodile will literally be biting back as you eat it. You will feel an intense burning – it will be a torrid experience and not for the faint hearted.
“There will be so much pain and toil and you will literally feel like you have wrestled a crocodile by the end of it.
“I am not sure anyone can finish it.”
Before any customer can try the Crocodile Inferno they have to sign a disclaimer form. The curry contains an array of some of the world’s hottest chillies including the ghost chilli, the Trinidad scorpion Butch T chilli pepper and the world’s hottest chilli the Carolina Reaper.
Any customer who isn’t beaten back by the ferocious heat will be awarded a prize: curry lovers who manage to eat a whole portion of Crocodile Inferno will win a special T-shirt to remember the occasion.
So far according to their twitter feed no one has yet walked out in possession of the prize.
