Two diners have now found out the toll a ‘Kismot Killer’ can take on the body after they were hospitalised by the fiery dish after the Kismot curry house in Edinburgh decided to turn up the heat on the dish for a charity event.
World's hottest chilli contest: Competitors tuck in to the 'Kismot Killer' curry, trying to prove it's not too hot to handle. It left two people in hospital... (Picture: TSPL)..
Ambulances were called to the restaurant, with one of those taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary (ERI) having to return there within hours of being released, for more treatment.
At the heart of the ‘Kismot Killer’ is the bhut jolokia chilli, considered the world’s hottest edible variety – 20 times more potent than some Cayenne peppers.
The blood red and brown dish containing three of the chillies gives off an air of menace and the disclaimer gives customers a taste of what they are letting themselves in for.
‘Kismot Restaurant will take no responsibilities for the bodily functions after you eat the curry,’ it says. ‘If you die whilst eating or as a direct result of eating the curry, members of the table will share the cost of your Kismot Killer.
Kim Curie had to be taken by ambulance to hospital twice in a matter of hours
‘If you become ill due to the Kismot Killer or if you find that you are experiencing any problems with your lover(s) then under no circumstances are you entitled to blame Kismot Restaurant or any members of its staff.’
Participants in the charity event had to eat spoonfuls of increasing strength ‘Kismot Killer’, with those who took a drink of milk before the end being disqualified.
Kim Curie, 21, a Korean exchange student at Edinburgh University, came second in the competition, which was in aid of the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland. She said: ‘I’ve always enjoyed spicy foods and thought this was for a good cause. But it came with a price: I had to be taken to the ERI twice. I have never endured such pain in my life.’

Melindas is one that is mentioned. the oddest thing about them is that while they are hot and make my head feel like a cauldron they have no effect on my bowel movements. to this day the only form of hot pepper that i regret eating once on the toilet is the plain old dried crushed red pepper flakes one finds in pizzarias all over nyc. for some reason that gives me the worst trouble on the toilet.
