Big news! Morrisons has a huge announcement in the world of hot food. It's only gone and made the hottest curry under the sun!
In anticipation of Britain's National Curry Week, the supermarket is releasing what it calls the 'hottest supermarket curry ever made in the UK'.
The new 'Volcanic Vindaloo' is so hot because it contains Naga chillies, which are two hundred times hotter than a Jalapeño, and probably a lot nicer than just eating two hundred of them, which would leave you with hallucinations and the world's most embarrassing sick note from work/school!
Naga chillies have been used in the past to develop tear gas grenades - that's how hot they are. They come from North East India and Bangladesh, where locals sometimes eat them as a raw side dish. They're similar to Ghost Pepper and measure between 1,000,000 and 1,598,227 SHU on the Scoville scale, which is a system of measurement used to determine the hot, hot, hotness of chillies.
Morrisons' new curry is aimed at the heartier curry fan, who looks at a Chicken Tikka and considers it an insult to the word curry and an affront to spicy food, someone looking for a culinary challenge when it comes to tea time.
The store hopes the new Volcano Vindaloo will match the heat of a restaurant Chicken Vindaloo, and worked with a team of curry chefs to create a dish that is blow-your-socks off hot while still actually tasting of something. It's topped off with whole green chillies just in case you hadn't punished your senses enough already. Morrisons Ready Meals Expert, Sean Gill, said:
"Curry fans have been telling us that they just don't get the fiery heat they want from ordinary ready meal curries. So we decided to take up their challenge and create the hottest ready meal in the country - something with the extreme heat you get when you order a Vindaloo in your favourite restaurant. We're looking forward to hearing what they think."
The 'Volcanic Vindaloo' is available from all Morrisons stores, for a limited period, priced at £1.50.
