Spicy food fans can now buy a range of curry kits that come with a health warning – as they contain some of the world’s hottest chillies, including the fiery Carolina Reaper.
Spice kit brand Spicentice.com have developed three new curry kits that could be the hottest available in the UK.
Priced at £3.59 each, the company has launched the Carolina Reaper Curry, a Phaal made with Naga ‘Ghost’ Chillies, and a Vindaloo made with Habanero Chillies.
The Carolina Reaper pepper is the hottest in the world, measuring at a staggering 2.2 million Scoville units. To compare, jalapenos are around 8,000 Scoville units.
Spicentice’s Carolina Reaper Curry contains 4g of the pepper, making up 17% of the kit. The chilli has been finely ground into the spice kit to add a real sting and long-lasting burn that hot food fans will love.
Naga ‘Ghost’ chillies also deal a spicy blow as they measure 750,000 Scoville units.
The tamest curry in the bunch is the Vindaloo, made with Habanero chillies that sit at 350,000 on the Scoville scale. Habaneros are the most common chillies used in hot curries.
The fiery trio can be purchased individually or as a set for £12 – the perfect gift for curry lovers and spicy food fans.
Each kit contains a step-by-step recipe card and shopping list, allowing customers to serve up four portions per packet.
Ketan Varu, co-founder of Spicentice.com said: “We’ve been tinkering with these kits for a while now, trying to get the balance of flavour and heat just right, and we think we’ve finally cracked it.
“Whilst most of our kits appeal to the masses and honour a variety of family favourites, this new range has been developed with the real hot heads in mind.
“Most supermarket curries and kits are around 20,000-30,000 Scoville units, so the Carolina Reaper Curry is off the thermometer scale. Even the Phaal and Vindaloo contain peppers that are as much as 37 times hotter!
“The gift set will make the perfect present for spice fans. If they think they can handle a spicy curry, they need to have a go at making these!”
The curry kits use 100% natural ingredients and are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Each kit contains a step-by-step recipe card and shopping list, allowing you to cook up the curries which will serve four people.
