It’s been labelled “Scotland’s sauciest starter” - and it’s been made available only in Glasgow, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Glow lothario Brain Matthews has stepped in to help launch the dish at a popular Indian eatery to put some extra spice into the lives of amorous diners.

As his on/off lover Victoria Obahor took to Scotland Tonight to air her views on feminism after it emerged walk-on grid girls will no longer be used before Formula One races, Brian headed along to the Merchant City to get in the mood for the most romantic night of the year.

Using at least NINE aphrodisiac ingredients, customers could very well be in for a night to remember after tucking into the complimentary food at The Dhabba.

The sweet, spicy and aromatic date dish features a combination of highly-tantric ingredients which have been carefully sourced by the venue’s chefs from the East.

The heart-shaped dough is made from brown rice (loaded with zinc which helps to improve the male and female libido) and oats (libido enhancers which can raise testosterone production).

It is stuffed with a blended mix of saffron (a potent enhancer used by Cleopatra), figs (an iron and potassium filled sensual fruit also favoured by Cleo), walnut (a Viagra alternative full of zinc and amino acids), poppy seed (a powerful sacred herb of joy), watermelon seed (high in citrulline to increase nitric acid which increases blood flow), and betel vine leaf (to stimulate).

The whole appetiser will be complemented with a strawberry (vitamin C-packed fertility fruit) and spice chutney.

Chancer Brian, 35, joked how he was pleased the restaurant “asked Scotland’s sauciest dish along to try out Scotland’s sauciest starter.”

Talking about his own plans for February 14, the cheeky chappy said: “They’re too naughty to reveal. A romantic meal works every time - and then maybe some rose petals at the end of the night. I’ll definitely be trying this dish with a special girl.”

Owner Navdeep Basi added: “We’ve made a point of not charging anything extra on Valentine’s night because we don’t want to sour the mood with extra expense.”
