    That makes sense. Or rather that it's the lack of "encapsulation" that makes it sting. But then my stomach could be collapsing from the heat rather than bacteria.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Never had ring sting, and I'm a curry addict. I always think the ring sting is due to slight diarrhea caused by bad food hygiene, rather than the spices itself. Eat at an establishment with better hygiene, basically :)
    I have to agree with that!

    @PazJohnMitch Again, this is also wrong, the "ring sting" is caused by capsaicin molecules not getting digested and therefor passing out of you, which causes the burn.

    Is there a degree of tolerance you can build up?

    I seem to be cursed by Calcutta Splutter, but dearly love spicy food.

    Yep.

    When I first got together with my other half, he couldn't handle anything hotter than a Korma. These days he'll happily eat a vindaloo without batting an eyelid.

    When you say handle... Which end was the problem at when he couldn't handle heat?

    My mouth can handle whatever, but the other end becomes quite, quite painful.

    I say eat what you like, and let your arse worry about it in the morning.

    The mouth. Never known him to have any problems at the other end. I've never had any either. I guess a tolerance at one end would increase tolerance at the other though, I dunno.

    Your best bet is to make sure the seeds are removed from the chilli, I don't think they digest well. You can still get plenty of heat from the fruit itself.

    It's often very tempting. But it's so horrible that it's just not worth it.

    I do remove seeds when cooking myself, and don't experience many problems there, but eating out is a whole different affair.

    I eat something spicy nearly every day. I miss it if I don't. Love the burn and the mild euphoria you get when eating chillis or hot food.

    Same as Mrs Bad09, I got her on Madras and Jalfrezi then eased her onto the mighty vindaloo by offering a taste here and there. I found out yesterday that Phal is now available in a jar thanks to Patak so already warned her I shall be making one soon. Nothing like traditional Brummie food to burn your arse :)

    I tried that Patak Phal. It's pretty horrific, and I can take my spice.

    It actually made the other half throw up from the heat, and then he had a stomach ache and heartburn the next day.


    More importantly though, It just wasn't particularly nice-tasting.

    @darkmorgado I love a phall and it is,my curry of choice. Having said that sometimes it seems to be hotter then others

    Well it's pretty much the hottest curry you can get.

    The Pataks one is made with Bhut Jolokia chillis IIRC.

    In other words it's a curry. But weaponised.

    No I didn't think the phal in the jar was that great.

    Nice or not if it has that kind of kick I just gotta try it, might be careful where the Mrs is concerned though :)

    I was discussing with a friend recently that Thai food is generally hotter than Chinese food. And I know that Chinese food is hugely varied, we were discussing the spicy offerings of both countries. She believes Chinese food to be hotter, and Thai to be more sour.

    I think Thai is hotter but have not been to Thailand.

    Huananese and Szechuan tend to be the hotter Chinese regions. Huanan is a sort of Horse radish style spice that attacks the nose and sinuses whereas Szechuan is the more common chilli variety.

    Indonesia has comfortably the hottest food that I know of. I had food poisoning for a solid month and lost 2 stone. Super hot chillies and lots of fish.
