Man hallucinates after eating World's hottest curry

A British doctor has 10 minutes of hallucination whilst eating this fiery dish.

08 Jan 2013

UK - British radiologist Ian Rothwell finished a plate of 'The Widower' at Bindi restaurant.

The Mail Online reported, "The curry, which is filled with 20 Naga Infinity Chillis (which tops six million units on the Scoville Scale) - the second hottest on the planet - is so dangerous to make it has to be prepared by chefs wearing goggles and a face mask.

But Dr Rothwell became the first out of 300 people to successfully tackle the curry at the Bindi restaurant in Grantham, Lincolnshire, on Thursday evening - and said completing the challenge was harder than when he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro last year.


Despite walking out of the restaurant half-way through after suffering hallucinations, he returned a short time later when his wife found him wandering along the high street.

And fighting back tears for another hour, Dr Rothwell finally managed to swallow the last mouthful to defeat the dish.

'I like hot curries and have at least one a week, but this was off the scale,' he said. 'It took me about an hour to eat it and I had to stop half way through and go out for a walk and some fresh air.

'My wife and the owner were quite worried and said I was hallucinating, but I managed to go back inside and finish the curry.'"
