A consignment of 'Raja Mircha' or 'King Chilli' from Nagaland was exported to London on Wednesday, the commerce ministry said.

The consignment was sourced from Tening, part of Peren district, Nagaland.

'The chilli from Nagaland is also referred to as Bhoot Jolokia and Ghost pepper. It got GI (Geographical Indications) certification in 2008,' it said.

Terming it as 'wonderful news', Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted: 'Only those who have eaten the Bhoot Jolokia will know how spicy it is!'.

Nagaland's King Chilli has been considered as the world's hottest chilli. It constantly features among the top five in the list of the world's hottest chillies based on the Scoville Heat Units (SHUs).
