I remember going on a work night out and we went to a curry place and one of the guys ordered a Phal, but asked them to make it extra hot. The chef even came out personally to make sure he knew what he was asking for and he said yes.
Guy downed the whole thing and wiped his bowl clean with his naan bread.

He wasn't at work the following day.

Yeah old threads should stay old and new ones made.

I wonder if it would be work auto locking threads that sit for more than 12 months. People can link the thread in the op but it could ensure old threads aren't bumped and new stuff is made

In honour of National Curry Week, which started 9 October, Morrisons has launched the hottest supermarket curry ever made in the UK. The grocery store has released the ‘Volcanic Vindaloo’, which features the one of the world’s hottest chillis – the Naga. The Naga has a Scoville rating of up to one million, and is 200 times hotter than Tabasco sauce or a jalapeno, with some Naga chilli varieties hotter than pepper spray. According to

Morrisons, the new curry is aimed at extreme curry lovers who find the spice levels existing in regular ready-made curries to be too tame.

The store decided to set themselves the challenge of creating a curry ready meal with the fiery heat of a restaurant-bought vindaloo, and it seems they’ve succeeded.

To create the dish – or plastic bowl, to be exact – the supermarket worked with a team of expert curry chefs to produce a curry that packs an eye-watering chili punch that aficionados of red hot curries, while retaining the traditional depth of flavour that the vindaloo has to offer.

To ensure curry-lovers get the full, tongue-burning sensation, the Volcanic Vindaloo comes topped with whole green chillies which are roasted to intensify the flavour and heat. The curry is so hot that Morrisons has even added a warning to its packaging, notifying customers that it’s been given a five chilli rating. A label of this kind is the first ever used on a Morrisons product. The chefs behind the curry strongly recommend that only people over the age of 16 tackle it.

Morrisons Ready Meals Expert, Sean Gill, said the idea for the hottest curry in the supermarket world came after various customers told the store their curries weren’t hot enough. He said: ‘Curry fans have been telling us that they just don’t get the fiery heat the 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.’

Anyone had it? I don’t go to Morrisons often but would if this delivers.

Last year for Halloween they did a “Hotter Than Hell” pizza that had Naga chillis on it. Hottest thing I’ve ever tasted :dread: It had warning labels on it and the staff had to wear goggles when making them.

Nearly the same story, but we were on a stag do and a guy was loudly saying how phal isn't enough for him. He made the guy make it as hot as possible and while eating it, again started loudly complaining it was too mild for him (despite being visibly and obviously uncomfortable). After, we went across the road to a pub and he disappeared. We found out some time later he stood at the bar to order a drink and promptly gooseberry fool himself :lol:

On topic, I like phal every now and then, but I tend to order a hot balti because it's tastier and then have a phal sauce on the side. Means you can dip and have a bit of hot whenever but not totally smother and overwhelm the dish.

I’d have a go at that. I tried the atomic vindaloo from Iceland and thought it was okay, hot but not unbearably so. I’m up for the challenge if Morrisons equivalent is even hotter.

I think the hottest curry I could comfortably eat would be a Madras, can't see the point in mega spicy stuff like phaal or KKs arse blistering Vindaloo.
