Habanero chili had been notoriously known as one of the hottest chili in the world.Coming from malaysia where eating spicy food is a norm and eating the dreadful "cili padi" or "cili burung" could be considered as nothing . It is tempting to test the "mat salleh" level of spiciness.What the "mat salleh" called as very spicy is actually nothing to us malaysian.I had lunch with an australian previously and he had told me that "sambal belacan" was very spicy and intolerable, i know most malaysia would laugh at that.I had just bought a HABANERO chili sauce at the COLD STORAGE departmental store and was extremely excited that finally i had the chance to sample the level of spiciness of HABANERO chili.The label on the bottle had indicated that it contain 40% mixture of HABANERO chilli per bottle and the rest is vinegar and other additive.
Verdict -"mak oiii , pedas menyengat!!!" . extremely spicy and stingy .different from the spiciness of the local "cili padi" .The local "cili padi" is very spicy but not stingy.The label on the bottle had indicated the level of spiciness as 10/10 and i definitely agree with that.
