Bhut Jolokia aka chilli from hell
Also known as Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich. Legendary variety, one of the world’s hottest peppers, if not the hottest, with readings in excess of 1,000,000 Scoville units. I only use 1/8 part of this pepper for cooking. with that amount it is still HOT!
Yesterday my father use one of this pepper and a handful of purple pepper to make" sambal belacan". I warned him that this hot pepper is really hot but he just brushed off my warning. He becomes very quiet after he taste his "sambal " . Today he tells me that it was so hot he can hardly breathe, his lips were swollen and his tongue was on fire. He nicknamed it " the chili from hell"
