Phaal

Categories: Capsicum and Food.

Several of our dear readers will remember me referring to the “hottest dish I have ever been served at a restaurant” being something called a Lamb “Fall” at India Palace in Dallas. Of course, no one had ever heard of “fall” as a curry dish.

Well, I found it–it’s Phaal , not “fall.” And according to wikipedia, it’s either an entirely made up concoction from NYC, possibly intended to be used to punish inebriated customers, or perhaps Bangladeshi in origin.

Where ever it is from, it has to date come the closest of any chile-based dish to defeating me.
