Chilly Calls for Chili
Greetings, Friends of The Mala Market!
We know many of you have been waiting patiently for the return of our fragrant-hot ground chilies, a mix of three chilies toasted and ground specifically for us in Chengdu that is the perfect base for homemade chili oil. Perhaps you like to have your own housemade chili oil on hand at all times, or perhaps you're planning to give your chili oil as holiday gifts. Either way, chili flakes are back in stock!
If you're like me, you have a chili oil collection. My housemade version is heavy on sweet shallots, but sometimes I want a readymade one with more garlic crunch like this one, and sometimes I want the full Sichuan-pepper-multi-spice flavor bomb.
Our one-of-a-kind Zhongba Handcrafted Soy Sauce is also back in stock, as is the super fragrant Yaomazi Green Sichuan Pepper Oil. You'll want both for the two recipes we're offering up this week.
Happy fall cooking!

P.S. Coming in the next couple weeks: Gift collections for those who want to learn to cook Sichuan, Yunnan or Xi'an food, plus absolutely gorgeous brass and stainless-steel yin-yang hot pots.
