What is Bhut Jolokia Chili, and where does it come from?

Bhut jolokia, also known as ghost pepper, is the hottest chili pepper in the world. It is twice as hot as Mexican red Savina, the second fiercest pepper. It is twice as strong as habanero pepper and three times spicier than cayenne.

The ghost pepper is an interspecific hybrid chili pepper grown in Northeast India. It gets its name from the translation, as Bhut Jolokia translates to "ghost pepper" in Assamese. Ghost pepper pods are unique among peppers because of their characteristic shape and fragile skin.

The ghost pepper, 170 times hotter than Tabasco sauce, was officially recognized as the world's hottest chili pepper in 2007 by Guinness World Records. More than one million Scoville Heat Units are assigned to the ghost chili (SHUs).

Is Bhut Jolokia Chili healthy or dangerous for you?

This pepper has numerous health advantages despite being quite hot. Bhut Jolokia has a variety of health advantages. Regular ingestion of Bhut Jolokia has been shown to prevent cancer, heart disease, skin illnesses, lower blood sugar levels, and even manufacture antioxidants. 

It has been used as homeopathic medicine for stomach aches, a technique to combat the summer heat, and a typical household ingredient in several regions of India and Bangladesh. The person will typically begin to sweat heavily after eating the Bhut Jolokia, which will eventually cause their body temperature to drop.

How is Bhut Jolokia Chili used?

Bhut Jolokia Chili adds sweet, fruity aromas and a gradually increasing heat to sauces, stews, and marinades. It is a boiling substance that needs to be handled carefully. In addition to being extremely hot, this chili has layers of taste typical of Indian food when added to stews, minced into sauces, or sprinkled on meat.

Ghost peppers are excellent for preparing hot sauces, dehydrating into powders or chili flakes, or cutting and cooking into larger meals, like pots of stew or chili, due to their extreme heat and fruity flavor.

In a big pot, the heat will truly bloom. A little bit is often enough. Use them similarly to how you would a habanero, but keep in mind that they are considerably hotter—up to five times as hot. 

Ghost peppers have a potent, sweet-fruity chili flavor. For the first 30 to 45 seconds, you will not experience any heat. Once the heat sets in, prepare to experience shortness of breath, hiccups, sweating, and eye irritation. The burning typically worsens over 10 to 15 minutes before going away after 30 to 40 minutes.

Nevertheless, with super hots, most capsaicin—the chemical that gives peppers their heat—reaches into the flesh, so they'll still be hot after you remove the innards before cooking. So use them sparingly or substitute a dairy product that helps to cool the heat instead.

Please note - We cannot stress enough how potent this stuff is. So please, when handling it, take extra care and time.

Unbelievable fact

The pepper has also been employed as a weapon; residents of northeastern India apply it to their fences to deter elephants, and smoke bombs have even been made from it.

Researchers at India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) announced intentions to incorporate peppers into hand grenades as a nonlethal alternative to pepper spray for riot control or self-defense in 2009. According to the DRDO, "civil variations" of chili bombs might be used to contain and disperse mobs. At the same time, aerosol sprays made of ghost peppers could be deployed as a "safety device." For example, the Indian Army utilized chili bombs fashioned from ghost peppers to flush out terrorists hiding in a cave in August 2015.
