    Whereas I normally like a nice madras, or even a chicken tikka masala or similar, every now and again I get the urge to have a good hot curry. A nice chicken chilli masala or jal frezi or something like that.

    Anyway, tonight, Morrisons' "Volcanic Vindaloo" from their Indian Takeaway range, caught my eye. The packaging is plastered with warnings: "CAUTION HOT"; "Very Hot" (and 6 chilli sympols); and "Warning - An extra red hot, fiery chicken curry with hot naga chillies."

    OK, I get the message. But this is supermarket curry, right? So it will probably end up being like a warmish Korma, and very disappointing as usual.

    Well how wrong was I. OMFG how hot this stuff is. This is the hottest curry I have eaten in at least 30 years. It is absolutely, mind-numbingly, blow your head clean off, kind of hot. I think anyone not used to hot curry who inadvertently spooned a mouthful of this in, would end up in A&E!

    Has anyone else tried it? And what did you think?
     
  2. I didn’t eat the chillies, but the actual curry wasn’t that bad.

    Hottest in 30 years? Lol

    OK, so I'm a wimp ;-) The bird eye chillies were actually quite cooling!

    Pretty nice curry tbh. Naga is one of my favourite chillis. Used to order from one place that did a Naga curry, and I swear they kicked it up a notch each time I ordered, the last one I had was blisteringly hot but tasty as.

    That’s the key it’s got to be full of flavour as well as inferno hot.

    Chicken vindaloo in a tin from Asda is good if you are a wimp like me.

    I don't think I'll need to wait until the morning.

    Heat and flavour, maybe.
