Cape Carolina Reaper Curry

This Cape Carolina Reaper curry is part of my series of dishes I am cooking with this super hot chili. In the year 2017 the Carolina Reaper was recognized by the Guiness 

book of records as the hottest chili in the world. But for all those that love the taste of spicy food the reaper has as well a beautiful fruitiness and depth to it that can add wonderful aromas to any meal if the chili is used properly. The secret to cooking with super hot chilies is to use the right quantities. It is easy to overdose and turn a tasty dish into a unpleasant fiery affair for all. So the quantities should be measured carefully to achieve the desired yummy outcome.
