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.”

What is the Scoville scale?

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.
