Pricey but worth it I would say. It's delicious on poppadoms, but go easy... Gently does it till you're used to the heat :)

for anyone who can't get mr naga or the like or really want the real McCoy then these are the real thing.

the hotness is in the seeds. i now freeze the sauce in ice cubes - works a treat (recipe http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=6005.msg60013#msg60013)

i know some rate the mr naga and that's fine. for the other point of view i've stopped using it in curry. i've not chucked it but am using it in place of tabasco for mex chilli in which it's not bad.

for me in this recipe i would not want it hot and therefore would leave the seeds out.

Thanks for that Jerry.

I must say though, I have never seem those chillies here in Perth, it's mainly Jalapenos here. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places....I don't know.  ???

Cheers mate. Don't think I'll be brave enough to try it on poppadoms. I'm still a bit of a wuss when it comes to heat. ;D

I couldn't wait for the Mr. Naga to arrive, so went off looking for something similar.

I made the Jaflong tonight for tea using this which i found at our local Indian grocers.



I can't make a comparison until I try the Mr. naga, but it was a nice curry with a very distincive taste. i dipped my finger into the oil in the jar for a taste, and it was bloody hot. ???

Just wondered if anyone else knows/has used this product?

Excellent link Chewy. Interesting article.

I s'pose you could say it was a unique taste. I'll definitely be having it again though. The wife loved it. Heat level was perfect for us, about a medium.

It'll be interesting to compare it with the Mr Naga. 8)

did not pick up on the 1st watch - the deep fry of the veg (what the caption says).

something i'd not even thought of. has anyone else tried it.

i'm not sure it would produce a better result than hot fry in wok. the interesting thing would be the taste added to the fryer oil which i presume would only be used for veg.

I got my jar yesterday and just had to make this curry again.

It tasted different, I suppose better, but not THAT much better.

I was brave/daft enough to try a bit of just the oil on a pappadom! ??? I won't be doing that again. Hot as!! :o
