AIBU to ask for help, I just made the hottest chilli in the world as I added loads of hit hillingdon powder (I thought it was paprika!) And now it's "blow your tits off" hot. I need ideas fast, is there any way to cool it down? Sorry it's not a proper AIBU but I need quick responses so posting for traffic

*chilli powder. No idea what hillingdon is hmm

Serve with lots of sour cream and guacamole?

I assumed Hillingdon was some posh brand grin

Swirl through some plain yoghurt.

Condensed milk? Coconut milk? Cream?

Eat it with some plain Yoghurt (also dont drinking water wont help much -milk is better)

I posted an identical thread a couple of years ago! Plain yoghurt was recommended. Unfortunately I only had raspberry yoghurt in so I knocked that idea on the head. Cream? Cheese? Cream cheese? Good luck! I think I had to bin mine sad

Divide in half, add more beans and tomatoes to one half for tonight and use the other half another time.
Or serve with plenty of plain yoghurt or sour cream and cucumber.

I always have bloody yoghurt apart from.the one time I need it, and DS is asleep so can't nip out. I will get some for the leftovers though (I've made a bloody huge pan of it). I'll search through the cupboard for coconut milk. Do you think as a last resort I could add some normal milk or would that be disgusting?

Normally I'd add extra tinned, chopped tomatoes and tomato puree to a chilli that was too hot, but it doesn't sound viable given just how spicy it currently is! I second serving it with something cooling like sour cream and maybe a glass of milk!

Plain yoghurt. My dad used to cook painfully hot curries/ chillis but always kept the fridge stocked with yoghurt. I'd get through tons of the stuff.

DontTouchTheMoustache Sun 08-Jan-17 19:44:09

Allalone good thinking, I will divide it up and buy natural yogurt for the rest of it tomorrow. Fucking fuck.

Don't add milk to it!! Do you have more tomatoes?

Blazedandconfused Sun 08-Jan-17 19:44:33

Nigella adds milk to tomato sauce. It's fine.

GretchenFetchem Sun 08-Jan-17 19:44:34

If you boil and reduce normal milk down so it's a bit thicker that would work. I wouldn't add it straight from the carton!

BearGryllsHasaBigRope Sun 08-Jan-17 19:44:37

Do not add milk!! The suggestion to split it and add more toms and beans seems the best so far.

harderandharder2breathe Sun 08-Jan-17 19:44:55

I've added milk to curry when I've made it too hot, it's always been fine but that's just for myself

Adding some sugar will help with the heat a little.

hefzi Sun 08-Jan-17 19:45:09

I've done similar (paprika / chilli): normal milk is surely worth a try (I used yoghurt) if it's inedible otherwise....

DontTouchTheMoustache Sun 08-Jan-17 19:45:48

I might add another tin of beans to try and dilute the spice per portion then try the reducing milk thing on a small portion first. Thanks for all the helpful and quick replies

Crispbutty Sun 08-Jan-17 19:46:18

I'm a chef and adding milk or cream is fine and will help reduce the heat.

DontTouchTheMoustache Sun 08-Jan-17 19:46:54

Thanks crispbutty I will give it a go.
