Morrisons has launched a curry determined to burn your tongue off.Advertisement
‘Curry regular’ customers at Preston and other stores complained the supermarket’s Volcanic Vindaloo wasn’t hot enough.
So Morrisons introduced an eight-chilli rated curry which now tops the Scoville Heat Scale.
Named the Flaming Fiery Phaal it contains Scorpion Chillis as well as Naga and green chillis and is the hottest supermarket curry available.
Morrisons Preston’s Claire Senko said: We love to hear back from customers and were happy to take on the challenge.
“The difficulty when making a phaal is to make sure it’s got as much flavour as it has heat. But we think we’ve pulled it off.”

The Flaming Fiery Phaal has been available from the Mariners Way Morrisons since Monday (8 October) and costs £2.
They’ve also launched Roulette Bhajis containing a box of 12 onion bhajis and three of these are extra spicy.

It measures the pungency of chilli peppers and other spicy foods.
It’s named after Wilbur Scoville who in 1912 devised the method for measuring the spice level.
The hottest peppers at 800,000 to 3.2m heat units are the Pepper X, Carolina Reaper, Dragon’s Breath and Naga Morich.
