Due to the popularity of the ‘Hottest Curry in the World’ we’ll be offering this dish as a special from Monday 19th to Friday 23rd February 2024. We’ll also be holding our annual Chilli Challenge on Thursday 22nd February where diners can take on dishes featuring The Carolina Reaper, which holds the Guinness Book of Records title of World’s Hottest Chilli.
If you are wondering what on earth would make someone try the Carolina Karahi; there are just some people who love the heat and seem to be less sensitive to such a hot chilli. There is also an incentive to give it a try because if you beat the Reaper by completing the dish, there are a range of prizes to claim.
When considering what dish should feature the Carolina Reaper Chilli, Zouk decided on its popular and much-loved chicken karahi and vegetable karahi. A traditional karahi originates from the Northwest region of Pakistan. It is usually prepared in a wok and cooked over hot flames with tomatoes, ginger, garlic, peppercorns and cumin forming the sauce base. A karahi can be cooked with chicken, lamb, seafood or vegetables but for the Carolina Reaper Karahi Zouk uses chicken or veg. The curry includes dried Carolina Reapers which are the hottest chilli in the world deemed suitable for human consumption. Zouk’s chefs even struggle with the heat a little when preparing the dish, and the team at Zouk believe it to be the World’s hottest curry and the world’s hottest kebab.
