Morrisons is selling its hottest ever curry

Morrisons is selling an eight chilli rated curry – the Flaming Fiery Phaal – after listening to its regular curry customers, who voiced complaints that the supermarket’s Volcanic Vindaloo wasn’t hot enough.

The blistering phaal has been created by the supermarket’s chefs, who have scoured the country to find the hottest recipe possible.

Their search led them to Birmingham’s Bangladeshi restaurants, the home of the phaal, which is often considered the fieriest and most challenging curry in the world.

A number of heat-hungry Morrisons customers sent reviews to Morrisons on the supermarket’s previous hottest curry – the Volcanic Vindaloo – deeming it ‘not hot enough’ and asking the supermarket to create ‘a much hotter version’.


Morrisons’ Flaming Fiery Phaal contains Scorpion Chillies which top the Scoville Heat Scale (which ranks how hot a chilli is) in addition to Naga and green chillies.

It boasts an eight chilli rating to make it the hottest supermarket curry ever.

Gaurav Kaushal, at Morrisons Woking, 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.”

Spice tolerances differ from person to person and it’s capsaicin, a compound found in chillies, which triggers pain receptors in the body to react when people eat spicy curry.

In addition to chillies, Morrisons Flaming Fiery Phaal contains chargrilled chicken breast, a thick tomato and onion base and a huge array of spices including paprika, garlic, ginger, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, fennel, fenugreek and cardamom.

Morrisons is also launching Roulette Bhajis – a box of 12 onion bhajis with three of those being extra spicy for those who want to take a heat-filled gamble.
