"I've just had a taste and my lips and stinging."
The world’s hottest curry has entered the region of Birmingham.
Lime Pickle, a Birmingham-based takeaway has introduced the Devil Dish competition to find the ultimate daredevils in a curry eating challenge.
The award-winning takeaway has had ingredients have been specially flown in from Mexico and Bangladesh for this deadly dish.
The lethal curry consists of some of the hottest chillies in the world.
This includes the ghost pepper, which is known to be 400 times hotter than jalapeños, Tabasco sauce and the Red Savina Habanero.
The Devil Dish is so intense that the staff serving it wear gas masks.
The restaurant boss Jay Alum said “I’ve just had a taste and my lips and stinging.”
But, this hasn’t seemed to put off any customers yet as a hundred brave participants have already signed up so far.
A prize of £100 pounds is up for grabs to the champions who can manage to devour the fiery curry in just 15 minutes.
The cash prize will go to a charity of the winner’s choice, while they win a winner’s T-shirt and a £25 gift voucher.
“The aim of the challenge is to give back to charity while having a little bit of fun too,” one of the employees of the restaurant said.
Participants have been asked to sign disclaimers before taking part, confirming that they are aware of the possible risks and side effects involved with eating the deadly curry.
“It can be extremely hot, which is why we are asking people to sign a disclaimer because there can be side effects.”
Some side effects can include indigestion, mouth blisters and burns and vomiting.
The participants will not be allowed to consume milk during the challenge, which is known for its properties to minimise the kick of hot chillies.
The inspiration for this challenge came after a similar competition took place in Staffordshire at The Dilshad.
