I have heard that some Naga people who are really passionate about Naga Chilli were campaigning to make the Food Board (or whatever administers over food-ish concerns) recognise the Naga Chilli as the hottest chilli in the world.
For a long long time, Mexican chilli was the hottest. Some said it was the Thai chilli. But now the Food Board (or whatever administers over food-ish concerns) has recognise that Naga Chilli IS the hottest chilli in the world.
How do I know. Hm. Well... Restaurant City (a game in facebook) gives you this daily quiz that you can win points with. And today they asked, Whats the hottest chilli in the world. And there was Naga Chilli. And lo and behold, I picked it and Bingo! I was right.
And so were all the Naga Chilli Enthusiasts who bid for this chilli to win that place.
(Well there's the thing about this chilli. It smells heavenly. If heaven was hot, then this would be its scent. )
Oh I am a Naga btw.
