Spicy stuff
There was a time in the early 90s when I tried curries of various grades of heat in order to work out my favourite. From pashwari, a fruity dish made with lychees, bananas and coconut all the way up to the bowel-wobbling vindaloo. Along with everything inbetween.

It was then that I discovered the 'Cobra Bite' in an Indian takeaway in West Hull. The Cobra Bite was a curry that was hotter than the Stygian conflagration of Hades itself. The takeaway menu graded the heat of the curries by displaying a number of chillis. Korma was one chilli, Madras was five chillis and Vindaloo was six. The Cobra Bite was twelve.

The proprietor of the takeaway caused me to sample a forkful before he would take my money, which was probably a clause in the shop's liability insurance.

I did manage about 75% of the meal with the help of over a quart of water to prevent gastro-immolation. But by Christ, the next day I knew about it. I knew it was going to be bad, but not this bad. I was beginning to think someone had used my arsehole as a crucible for smelting tin. Either that or Mrs Sandettie was secretly buggering me with a soldering iron.

Never again, and nowadays even the thought of eating anything with more heat than a dansak makes my ringpiece go into spasm.

We have a "twelve chilli" curry in a local place - it's free if you can finish it
And that's on a scale where vindaloo is three, phall is four...

Basically, it's stupid-englishman-pissed-up-on-lager bait.

Kudos for the evocative descriptions. I particularly enjoyed "used my arsehole as a crucible for smelting tin".

Done
the phall a couple of times. Don't see the point - I find a good Dhansak far more pleasurable. Or Malay Malacann beef if I can find it.

If it's too hot
you don't actually taste it.

I once had a vindaloo...
...that left my ring feeling like it had been smeared in deep heat and somehow with simultanious constipation and diarrhea.

I ended up sat in the shower, sobbing like a child, waiting for the pain to stop...

Water does sod all apart from dilute the capsaicin bearing curry.
It's lipids you need to disolve the capsaicin so a glass of milk or maybe some yoghurt is what you need ;)

I like this muchly.
It triggers empathetic memories of the morning after my local 'Asian' restaurant's stuffed chili menu. Like getting a prostate massage from the Human Torch.

Phrases like these are why I love this site...
