The pujara is a small plant that grows in clusters. Bright orange petals sprout from dark green stems and leaves. A large bulb at the heart of the plant lies just beneath the surface of the soil. The roots sprout from beneath this bulbous central mass. The core of the bulb has a dark brown husk and a white pulpy interior, which if mashed up and dried slowly, results in a bright orange powder.
Pujaran fire spice is a bright orange powder with an intense, painfully hot, flavor. Very small quantities will spice up any dish. In large quantities, it can deaden nerve sensation and cause a lethargic stunned state. If poured into an open bleeding wound, it causes excruciating pain.
Pujara grows in tropical rainforests throughout the equitorial belt of the world. It can be found in Myria, Karth, the Pirate Isles, the Aswanar Wildlands, the Fire Isles, the Mael Ix Drablin forest, the Elarum Woods and the Sitharek Rainforest.
This is the hottest spice known to the civilized races.
