   Hottest curry: world record set by Vivek Singh

  LONDON, UK--Indian Chef Vivek Singh, from The Cinnamon Club in London, has used some of the fieriest ingredients from across the globe in The 'Bollywood Burner', setting the new world record for the hottest curry.

  The lamb-based curry has been commissioned by Richard Branson’s company Virgin Media, to mark the launch of its new Bollywood On Demand service, enabling film fans to watch top Bollywood flicks at the touch of a button.

The dish includes the Naga pepper and its seeds which, on the Scoville scale that measures the piquancy of peppers, has a figure of 855,000 - over 100 times hotter than the jalapeno pepper.

  A jalapeno pepper, ordinarily considered hot by most diners, is a paltry 8,000 on the scale by comparison.

   Inspired by cuisine from Hyderabad, the state capital of Andhra Pradesh in India, the dish includes:
    - A series of hot Deccan chillies
    - Dorset Naga (the hottest Naga pepper) seeds (over 855,000 on the Scoville scale)
    - Kashmiri chilli powder
- Sesame tamarind sauce
    - Naga peppers
    - Scotch Bonnet peppers (around 300,000 on the Scoville scale). (enlarge photo)

Diners are required to sign a disclaimer saying they are aware of the nature and risks involved with tasting the curry before eating it.

  Lianne la Borde of the Daily Star newspaper said: "It is the hottest I have ever tasted. At first, it tasted delicious. Then my mouth caught fire. It even made me feel dizzy."

  The curry may not regularly appear on the menu.

  “I would create it on demand for customers but will not include it all the time, I think it’s just too extreme a dish” -said Mr. Vivek Singh.

  James Kydd, Virgin Media’s managing director of brand and marketing said: "We are delighted to be bringing the hottest film genre to our customers with Bollywood On Demand, so what better way to celebrate than with the world’s hottest curry. Bollywood is set to really take off this year and we’re hoping to encourage people to try something new – be it a Bollywood movie or an extra hot curry!"
