The Hot Chilli Thread

Post by Fishsta » Fri Jul 25, 2014 8:11 am

Look what Tesco have in:

Weighing in at over 2 million Scovilles, they are seriously awesome. Just had one on a cheese and ham sandwich. Like the Bedfordshire Super Naga, the heat creeps up on you, you think it's not so bad, but then, just as you finish the last mouthful, it becomes intense, starting through the whole tongue and spreading up to the roof of the mouth. Just now I've reached that comfortable stage where it feels like you're breathing fire, you can feel your nose being cleared with every breath, but it's not painful.

Looking forward to using these in a proper chilli.

No, the Ghost Chilli is the Bhut Jolokia Chilli. I had them a few years ago. They were beaten by the Bedfordshire Super Naga, which are now thrashed by this baby.

Chilli heat is measured in Scovilles. Basically, it's the ratio of Water to Chilli required to completely dissipate the heat.

So, for example, here are some common and hottest chillis and their ratings:

Jalapeno - 2,500 to 5,000
Hungarian Hot Wax - 5,000 to 10,000
Birds Eye Pepper - 100,000 to 225,000
Scotch Bonnet - 100,000 to 325,000
Habanero - 100,000 to 350,000
Bhut Jolokia - approx 855,000
Dorset Naga - 923,000
Bedfordshire Super Naga - Approx 1,120,000
Trinidad Scorpion Chilli - highest recorded of over 2,200,000!

Chillis, and especially really HOT chillis, are becoming big business. You can put warnings like this on hot sauce:

And people will STILL buy and consume it.

I like a little spice but bloody hell! Eating that would be the same as someone pulling my toe nails out :lol:

Medium curry I can do, but hot (Vindaloo) just seems to be a totrture implement. My mouth was not designed to eat a chilli!!! I do like getting stupidly hot stuff in at work so those that do have heat proof tongues get to prove how hot they can go... so those chillis are on my shopping list :D

I've noticed as I get older, my tolerance to hot chilli is getting worse!

I used to eat hot curry / pasta etc all the time with no problems, but now I'm becoming a lightweight!

soon macaroni cheese will be too much for me! :lol:

I watched the video, Fishta. Next time, use either milk or yoghurt to cool down - that's much better than water.

I grew some Dorset nagas a few years ago and they were pure evil. I would like to try one of these...

I watched the video, and I do wonder why anyone would ever want to eat stuff like that. I don't like anything spicy at all, so I'd probably die if I eat that burger, but even stuff that's a bit hot to me isn't nice. It's just painful. I don't get the whole 'hot spicy food' thing at all.

It's like buying shoes that hurt when you walk, or a hat with spikes in it. Madness.

Some people can tolerate it and some can't. I find hot and spicy food to be rammed full of flavour tbh. But it's not like I love on a diet of vindaloo only lol.
