Excruciating Curry
At West Jordan’s India Fusion Restaurant (7726 Campus View Drive, 801-280-5459), they serve a curry called phall curry that is so incendiary—it’s described as “excruciating, scorchingly hot curry”— that it requires a verbal disclaimer from customers to not hold India Fusion liable “for any physical or emotional damage eating this curry may inflict upon you.” Holy moly! And, anyone able to finish the dish receives a free dessert to help put out the fire, a certificate of completion and their name on the Wall of Phall. This curry is so hot that the chef has to wear a gas mask to prepare it (I’ve seen the photos). Looking for something milder? Sign up for India Fusion’s weekly newsletter at and tasty recipes will be delivered to your e-mail inbox. I just tried their tandoori chicken recipe this week and it was superb—best tandoori I’ve ever cooked!
