A British-themed restaurant in Manhattan has made a phaal so hot it includes the Indian Bhut Naga Jolokia chilli, which is used to make tear gas.
The curry measures one million units on the Scoville scale and chefs at the curry house wear masks to cook it.
Made using eight chillies, the dish has left New York diners vomiting, crying and sweating.
Some hallucinated and two were rushed to hospital. The paste is prepared over several hours and the curry, which costs 12 pounds, is available with meats, cheese or vegetables. (ANI)
