Morrisons has launched an eight chilli rated curry after customers complained that the supermarket's hottest curry wasn't hot enough.
The new “Flaming Fiery Phaal” contains scorpion chillies, which top the Scoville Heat Scale, in addition to Naga and green chillies. Morrisons claims that with it’s eight chilli rating it is “the hottest supermarket curry ever.”
The new dish comes after a number of customers left reviews on the Morrisons website for the “Volcanic Vindaloo”, saying it was “not hot enough” and asking the supermarket to create “a much hotter version.”
John Salmon, at Morrisons Catton just outside of Norwich, 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 new curry launched on October 8 and costs £2.
