Crunchy Heat: The Irresistible world of Crispy Chilli Oil

26 Mar 2024

Crispy Chili Oil is a popular seasoning in Chinese cuisine. It usually consists of chili peppers, garlic, Sichuan peppercorns and various spices steeped in hot oil. The "crispy" aspect comes from the addition of crispy fried garlic or shallots, which add both texture and flavor to the oil. By heating different herbs in hot oil, the oil gets a unique taste.

The crispy chilli oil is often used as a seasoning or flavor enhancer in dishes such as noodles, rice dishes, dumplings, stir-fries and soups. It adds spiciness, depth of flavor and a satisfying crunch to dishes, making it a versatile and beloved ingredient in many Asian cuisines. Curious about our Lao Gan Ma crispy chilli oil fried rice?
