An Indian mother is set for an entry into the Guinness World Records after eating 51 of the world’s hottest chilli in two minutes.
Anandita Dutta Tamuly, 26, gobbled up the “ghost chillis” in front of visiting British chef Gordon Ramsay in the north-eastern state of Assam.
Ms Tamuly told Associated Press she “felt terrible” – because she had managed 60 in an earlier local event.
Mr Ramsay tried a chilli but said “it’s too much” and pleaded for water.
He is in Assam for a television shoot of a global food series.
