Radhuni, are they so spicy that they would burn your hand if you touch them?

Oh I just "googled" it and it is the pepper that we call ghost chili, the hottest pepper in the world! Oh my goodness!

Yes this is ghost chilli literally translated bhoot jolokia.

My skin started burning when I touched the pickled one but my DH is eating it with hand (you know we eat with our right hand).

May be it depends on habit, they are eating bhoot jolokia from their childhood.

It has a very intoxicating sweet smell.
