Morrisons is launching an eight chilli rated curry, the Flaming Fiery Phaal.

The curry comes after curry regular customers told the supermarket their Volcanic Vindaloo wasnt hot enough.

The new curry has been created by Morrisons chefs, who have found the hottest recipe possible.

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

Morrisons Flaming Fiery Phaal contains Scorpion Chillies which top the Scoville Heat Scale – a ranking of how hot a chilli is – in addition to Naga and green chillies. It has a chilli rating of eight, making it the hottest supermarket curry ever.

Self-claimed chilli connoisseur Paul McCourt, a Morrisons customer from Runcorn, sent a review to Morrisons on the supermarkets previous hottest curry – the Volcanic Vindaloo.

He deemed it was not hot enough by any standards and asked the supermarket to create a much hotter version.

Paul said: I was surprised to hear back from Morrisons. You dont expect a complaint like this to be listened to.

Im a big spice fan and always enjoy a challenge, however the Volcanic Vindaloo wasnt hot enough for me. Although Ive been made to eat my words after tasting the Flaming Fiery Phaal!

Vimal Dhananjayan, who developed the Morrisons curry, said: We love to hear back from customers and were happy to take on Pauls challenge.

The difficulty when making a phaal is to make sure its got as much flavour as it has heat. But we think weve pulled it off and were really glad Paul approves.
