We're making a Naruto recipe today that has me a bit nervous, but also excited... the Curry of Life! The Curry of Life makes its appearance in Episode 153. Rock Lee loves the Curry of Life, and this curry is even known to revive people from unconsciousness or heal them from the brink of death due to its extreme spiciness.
I am a weak baby when it comes to spicy foods, so I'll be using standard sriracha. We'll be calling it the Neji Version, since Neji doesn't have a high spicy food tolerance either. Look for that if you're not a fan of super spicy, either!
However, Anthony has a higher tolerance - and willingness - to try extremely spicy foods, so he'll be trying the true Curry of Life. We'll call this the Rock Lee version.
If you want something more in the middle of the road, look for the Naruto version.
A few years ago, Anthony's coworkers had a contest to see who could make it the furthest. One of his coworkers is a hot sauce connoisseur that brought in a bunch for people to try with wings, and Anthony actually made it to the very end... despite some dripping on his chin and making his face go numb as a result.

The hot sauce he got for this recipe is even hotter than the hottest one his coworker brought in to work that day. He'll be using the Mad Dog 357 Gold Edition, which clocks in at 1 million Scoville units. It includes the world's three hottest peppers: the Carolina Reaper Pepper, Scorpion Pepper, and Ghost Pepper.
The bottle even includes a legal disclaimer saying that you're not inebriated, you understand the risks, and you'll tread with caution... and you won't sue the company if you don't. It includes a little bullet-shaped keychain that holds a serving spoon, and it is tiny.
What we'll be doing is adding our spicy element after we've already made our curry, so that way we can have some not-spicy-curry available in case it's too much. Then, you get to customize your heat levels each time.
