Naga Bhut Jolokia broke all the records, before the naga was tested Habanero Savina was king at 500K Shu, the Naga Bhut Jolokia was a tested and smashed the 1m SHU The Chilli that started a revolution – Cheers Pete (the man who brought naga to the world)!
Naga is rated at 1m SHU – see our guide for how hot this is but trust me it’s hot, in curry terms it is 10x hotter than a Vindaloo
Naga Bhut Jolokia translated into English is Ghost Pepper
Naga evolved in north India after being taken to this part of the world by The Portuguese in the 1500s, it has changed the chilli oil so when you eat one of these bad boys it will burn for 10 minutes, normal superhots will peak after a few minutes
Watching naga videos always go the same way, after a few seconds "it’s not that hot" after 1 minute its "I’m dying"!
Naga flavour is a wonderful and distinctive chilli fruity flavour
To get the best from chilli heat up and simmer for a few minutes to release the oils that make this a great hot chilli
