Carlisle restaurant bids to make hottest curry in world
Published at 09:22, Friday, 28 May 2010
A Carlisle restaurant is backing England to lift the World Cup – as it enters the curry equivalent with an eye-watering dish bosses reckon is the hottest on the planet.
Owners of The Viceroy have created the fiery Chicken Vinda-Roo, named after England spicy food-lover and super striker Wayne Rooney.
The dish contains a mix of fiery spices and the hottest chilli in the world known as Bhut Jolokia or King Naga.
The Viceroy owner Sukur Ali has sent a copy of his recipe to Wayne to spur him on. But he also hopes Rooney’s inspiration will help his Shaddongate eaterie lift the championship when it enters the World’s Hottest Curry competition in London later this year.
Mr Ali, who is set to retire after decades in the business, said: “We are all rooting for England to win the World Cup. Wayne has been on fire this year – so it seemed appropriate to name our hottest curry after him.
“Hopefully, he will get his hands on the World Cup trophy and we want to do the same with the hottest curry title."
The dish will be served at The Viceroy during the World Cup, with the restaurant making a donation to charity for every customer who manages to clear their plate.
