It’s about to get hot in here.

Are you feeling brave? Perhaps you’re in the mood to for something a little more hot and spicy.

It’s time to get stuck in as we’re back with the Lovin Dublin Curry Club. And this time we have our sights set on India.

Indian cuisine is one of our favourites. There’s just so much flavour, excitement and most importantly, SPICE!

If you’re in the mood for your fix of Indian, we’ve got you covered. We decided to come up with a list of ten incredibly spicy Indian curries in Dublin for you to try.

1. Phall from Spice N Rice

Dubbed the ‘spiciest curry in Dublin’, you can be fairly certain that you’ll get your fix of Indian spice with this dish from Spice N Rice on Dorset Street.

Beware, enjoy with caution!

2. Vindaloo from Kathmandu

Made with a variety of ingredients such as freshly grounded chilis, ginger, tomatoes and onion, your tongue will be fairly hot after enjoying this dish.

This spot on Dame Street serves up some delicious authentic Indian and Nepalese food, and at fairly moderate prices.

Using Himalayan herbs and spices, Kathmandu is a truly authentic Indian/Nepalese dining experience in the heart of the city.

3. Chicken Chilli Masala from Vermillion

Made with pieces of chicken tikka in a spicy onion and tomato sauce with red and green bell peppers, lots of fresh spices and fresh chopped chillies, this curry won’t just tickle your tastebuds, it’ll make them go wild, but in the best way.

Located in Terenure, Vermillion brings the true taste of India to Dublin’s southside, offering a fabulously stylish and, of course, spicy dining experience.

4. Tikka Mirchi, Bombay Pantry

Bombay Pantry has takeaway restaurants in Fairview, Clonskeagh, Glenageary, Rathfarnham, Rathmines and Walkinstown, so you’re likely to find one in close proximity.

5. Vindaloo from Konkan

You’ve probably guessed by now that Vindaloo is one of the spiciest dishes you could ever experience. And the Vindaloo from Konkan (on Clanbrassil Street and in Dundrum) is no exception.

They also have plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as plenty of other super spicy dishes to excite your tastebuds, such as the Madras, the Chicken Biriyani and the Rogan.

6. Chilli Masala from Spice Of India

This dish is as delicious as it is hot and spicy. Made with chicken, fresh chillis and special spices, it serves up all of the excitement that Indian cuisine is known for.

Or, if you’re feeling extra brave, try their Vindaloo, which will likely set your taste buds on fire.

10. Jaipuri Lal Mass from Tadka House
