NotesThis is not some mad creation of a chilli head chef trying to frighten away lager louts, but a very authentic traditional Bangladeshi speciality.
The use of the legendary Naga Jolokia chilli,which the Indian equivalent of the F.D.A. rate at a staggering 885,000
Scovilles,plus the searing Bird chillies makes this the hottest authentic curry I have ever found,and I have been collecting books on the subject for years.
