Customers at an Indian Restaurant in Birmingham have been set a challenge as they put The Devils Dish on the menu.

The Ingredients have been flown in from Mexico and Bangladesh, and include two of the world's hottest chillis, ghost pepper and the ghost reaper.

Waiters who serve the Devil’s Dish will wear gas masks and those taking part have 15 minutes to clean their plates. So far, 100 people have signed up.

The curry is so hot that contestants have to sign a disclaimer to take part:

I’ve just had a taste and my lips are still stinging.

It will be extremely hot, which is why we are asking people to sign a disclaimer because there can be side-effects.

– Jay Alum, Lime Pickle boss.

It comes after a similar competition in Staffordshire when The Dilshad, in Chadsmoor, Cannock, served up the Crocodile Inferno, a curry twice as hot as tear gas.

A couple from Swadlincote, Wez and Caroline Cartwright managed to succeed in finishing the dish.
