Food is so beautiful that it can give a person a whole range of sensations. The taste can be sweet and bitter, sharp and sour. And for each dish there is an amateur. But the spicy dishes stand out a little from the general list, it seems that there is always only an extreme can eat them. Nevertheless, people constantly come up with new and more acute dishes. Here are a dozen of the most burning and spicy dishes.
Hot Suicide Wings.
The literal translation of this dish means “hot suicidal wings”. This name for his invention was very cleverly given by Robin Rosenberg, a chef from Chicago. Only these chicken wings very few people dare eat. After all, they are the most acute in the world! To give visitors a chance to taste this dish, the restaurant administration takes some precautions. So, the guest signs a document, according to which he refuses to prosecute the institution in case of possible problems with digestion. To make the wings turn out to be so sharp, the Savin peppers is used, it is one of the sharpest in the world. If there was a daredevil who ordered this dish, the waiters immediately get ready to give him an “ambulance”. Always at hand is sour cream, white bread and milk sugar, which can become an antidote. The cook himself Rosenberg has long wanted to create an unusually sharp dish. He believes that although for most people these wings will be absolutely unacceptable, perhaps somewhere in the world there is a person who will eat a dish with the greatest pleasure.
In London, there is an institution of Indian cuisine, which rightfully claims to be the owner of the most acute dish on the planet. The chefs of this restaurant believe that this is exactly their dish of lamb with curry sauce, carefully sprinkled with the sharpest peppers in the world. All this together is called “Bollywood Burner”. However, in the main menu it can not be found. Such a burning dish can be prepared only on special order. And in this case, a gourmet who wishes to taste such an acute dish must first give the administration of the institution a receipt. There he confirms that he ordered this meal consciously and in case of any complications with the body takes full responsibility for himself. Such an acute dish came from the Indian province of Hyderabad, where such food is generally traditional. Gourmets, who have tasted in the English restaurant curry, say that there are no such sharp sauces anywhere else. Because for its preparation, pepper naga is used – the most acute plant in the world. There is a special Scoville scale, which estimates the burning of peppers. So, according to her, the naga has a figure of 850 thousand units. Is this a lot or a little? For example, pepper Tabasco, used in traditionally spicy Mexican cuisine, has “only” 800 units. And that tear gas based on pepper, which is used by policemen in America – 2 million units.
This dish is prepared in India, where it is considered to be the most curry. Sauce phala is not simple, it includes just 10 kinds of pepper. Among them, Bhut Yelekia is the most acute spice on the planet in the opinion of the Guinness Book of Records. But the dish was famous not at home, but in New York. There the sauce began to be offered in one of the restaurants. As a result, visitors, having tasted such unusually sharp, but tasty dish, began to bring their friends there.
“A shameful hot pot.”
The Chinese do not consider it shameful to eat such a dish. It is prepared in one of the restaurants of the country. It’s hard to say why such an acute powder was given such a name. There is a legend, according to which, the dish was once part of a sadomasochistic ritual. But the owner of the institution says that visitors do not stop strict warnings about the unusual severity of the dish. As a result, literally after the first spoon, there is a typical picture – people grab at the throat or stomach and ask them to bring them some faster fluid.
Speaking of spicy food, we mean Mexico, India. However, it turns out that really hot dishes are able to cook and Australians. It was here that came up with a specific chili, which is considered almost the most acute sauce in the world. Naturally, the queues of gourmet-extremals for such a sharp dish is not and never was. Usually sauce is added in the form of a small portion in some main dish. In pure form, there is such a chile can only a madman. When preparing this sauce, then use the same hot pepper nuggets of jolokia, as in the above-mentioned restaurant of Indian cuisine in London. Recently, the media reported that there were two brave souls who decided in the pursuit of glory to swallow and not even a sauce, but its main burning component. Ryan Duke and Alex Fenning were able to survive after their brave attempt. But both have similar impressions from their experience – they will not try this dish for the second time. But the guys got a reason to be proud of themselves and a portion of glory.
This Mexican sauce is known all over the world. But the most common is its easiest and sparing people option – Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce, its severity rating is only 600-1200 points on the Scoville scale. And the most acute sauce from this family is Tabasco Habanero Sauce, its rate is 5-7 thousand points, which is almost 10 times more than the fortress Tabasco Green. This sauce is not only unprecedented for the average consumer witticism, but also a complex original recipe, which came straight from the Jamaican cuisine. Tabasco Habanero includes vinegar, abanero pepper (one of the sharpest in the world), cane sugar, salt, mango pulp, tamarind, bananas, papaya, tomatoes, dried onions, garlic, spices and regular Tabasco sauce along with aged in oak barrels with the same name pepper. Usually, Tabasco Abanero’s hot sauce is consumed with vodka. The effect of it significantly exceeds the effect of any pepper. It is enough to add only a drop of hot sauce in a glass. It is also used as a condiment not only for native Mexican, but also for very exotic cuisines of the world – African and Caribbean.
Couscous with lamb and vegetables.
In the Maghreb countries (Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria), couscous is almost the main dish in the diet of local residents. But it is common in other African countries, as well as in France, in the province of Trapani, in Italy and in some countries in the Middle East. The couscous has several cooking options, not all of them are sharp. There is a sweet couscous, from fish and even a vegetarian variety. But the abundance of pepper is traditionally famous for the variant with mutton. As a result, the combination of all the ingredients in it gives a very sharp dish. Is it any wonder after that that the Maghribans, and the Africans, who in their mass like couscous, behave more actively and more cheerfully than their neighbors from the north, the Europeans. The couscous is based on semolina, obtained from durum wheat. Traditionally, couscous is made by women, since work on such a dish is very laborious.
Watermelon in Mexican.
Watermelon is usually considered a sweet dish, believing that it can be arranged in the mouth of a real fire will be able to a few. Meanwhile, in Mexico, where it seems that they are keen to make any dishes cooked in a special way, this berry has also become one of the most acute dishes. The use of spicy spices was found in this case. Watermelon is abundantly flavored with pepper, salt and sprinkled with lemon juice. This dish has a very specific taste and many people simply will not understand it, considering it disgusting. Although we have here and there are preparing salted watermelons, to the pepper certainly no one thought of. But in Mexico there are people who want to try this exotic spicy food.

They are so sharp that they can scare even the old fans of Tabasco.Sauce Mom Africa Abanero makes sobs even the most persistent lovers of keenness. And this is not surprising, because the indicator of this dish is 22 thousand scovillians. Gourmets warn ordinary people from thoughtless tasting, it is enough just to smell the sauce, and even then it is desirable from afar. So sharp Mama Africa made fresh fruit and chili, as well as green pepper, onions and garlic, lemon juice. To add a spicy taste to the dish, a whole set of dried and fresh seasonings is added: oregano, ginger, basil, mint and black pepper. Mom of Africa has several varieties, but the most acute are the varieties “Abanero”, “Mom Africa with red pepper Chile” and “Mama Africa Chile with mint.”
