How spicy is the crispy chilli oil?
Lao Gan Ma crispy chilli in oil is made with sichuan pepper and dried chillies. Sichuan pepper has distinct tongue-tingling notes, with a cold-heat, rather than an overpowering spice. When mixed with dried chillies and soybeans, the result is a chilli oil with balanced heat and umami depth.
Why is Lao Gan Ma so popular?
