Until recently, naga bhut jolokia chilli - held the title as the hottest pepper in the world. It is a dangerously hot ingredient, which should be used with caution.
In fact, naga bhut jolokia chilli powder is used as tear gas in India, and ranks over one million units on the Scoville Scale of chilli heat – ten times hotter than scotch bonnets. The chillies are mainly grown in Bangladesh and north eastern Indian states.
We love bhut jolokia chillies because along with their fiery heat they also have intense tropical notes: you’ll be able to smell banana, and perhaps even pineapple. That means they bring a fantastic range of flavours to your cooking.
You can add just one chilli to a curry before simmering in the oven for several hours, to give the perfect level of heat - though make sure to remove the whole chilli pod before serving. Our delicious recipe for Naga Bhut jolokia lamb rogan josh is the perfect example of this.
Naga bhut jolokia is also known as the ghost chilli, or sometimes just the naga chilli.
