    Was ok, it seems to me curry heat has been dumbed down. This vindaloo was what I recall a madras 'heat' being say ten years ago?

    Might try a phal next time

    Sometimes really spicy is just the job. Be wary of anything with Carolina Reaper chillis in, they are ridiculously hot.

    always feel too much heat destroys flavour, and your taste buds, and can hide bad food too. i cant take as hot as i did(was never close to vindaloo tho). tikka the way i make it is fine for me now; its a little warmer than normal but not much. I like the flavours to come through.
    I remember once eating a very hot pizza down in a American grill in Blackpool many years ago and i hit some chillis that froze my brain for 20 mins

    That is/was the whole point. The hotter the climate, the quicker meat will spoil so the spicier the food has to be to disguise the putrefaction. That was before people had access to fridges.

    In the Indian subcontinent the curries get hotter as you go south. They are quite mild in the north and in Nepal, but are positively 'radio active' in Kerala and in Sri Lanka.

    Like you I can't eat hot curries; never could - only Tikka Masala or Biryanis for me.
