Ghost Chilli

Ghost Chilli

Chillies wheather raw or dried are an importatant ingredient in Indian Cuisine.It is difficult to imagine Indian food without chilli.Normally chillies are meticullusly chosen according to taste by region,spice , heat levels and color.Few of the chillies found are Byadagi, kashmiri, Madrasi, Guntur, Chickballapur and Boriya Chillies.During my North east Indian sojourns I came across a lilliput size chilli known as Bhoot Jkalolia with resddish orange color.


The Bhut Jolokia is also known as Ghost Pepper has been around for many centuries and it is believed to have originated in Assam, India. The word Bhut, given from the Bhutias people, means "ghost" and was probably given the name because of the way the heat sneaks up on the one who eats it.
It was only introduced to the western world in 2000. In that same year, a report was published stating it's level of heat as almost double that of a Red Savina Habanero which was believed to be the world's hottest pepper. In replicated tests of Scoville heat units (SHUs), Bhut Jolokia reached one million SHUs, almost double the SHUs of Red Savina, which measured a mere 577,000.

In 2007 The Ghost Pepper was certified and crowned as the hottest Chili Pepper on the planet in The Guinness Book of World Records.
By merely touching the chilli ones gets a burning sensation.If you happen to tour North East part of India don’t forget to taste this and feel hot..!
