Habanero Chillies

I have a Habanero chilli tree in my garden. I got the seeds from Coorg, where Anurag and Sujata Goel run an organic farm called Rainforest Retreat. I use one sliver of a chilli in an entire dish and the taste is intense ! I've made chilli oil and have been cooking in it, or pouring it on top of rice, pasta, and bread.

Incidentally, the Habanero is only the third hottest chilli in the world! The hottest chilli is the Bhut Jolokia from Assam. I would really like to know how people in Assam use this chilli.

In Assam we usually pickle it and use it traditional medicines

Well one gentleman in my office, who happens to be a very good cook found these small capsicum like chillies at the supermarket and decided to make a starter with it. He used the whole chilli. A few of us including me were intrigued by this minnow of a chilli and consumed one full one at one go. Someone who has not done this, will not be able to fathom what the next 4 days were like.

I now use it in moderation. God made the Habanero! I know a few who agree with me.
