About this deal

The aromatic oil and crispy bits infuse your veggies and proteins with a spicy kick that elevates the entire dish. Both the peanuts and caramel sauce topped Coolhaus Best of Both Worlds Vanilla, and if you’re feeling frisky — extra Fried Chili Oil. Laoganma Crispy Chilli in Oil is versatile and can be used as a dip, sauce, or seasoning for a wide range of dishes, including noodles, rice, dumplings, meats, vegetables, and even pizza. The most well known chili crisp is Lao Gan Ma brand, with its ruby red oil, crunchy large flakes, and serious looking grandma on the jar.

Serve it as a condiment with noodle or rice dishes, drizzle it into soups and ramen dishes, use as a dipping sauce, just about anywhere. Lao Gan Ma is one of the most popular chilli sauce brands in China and has become renowned for its great-quality products across the world. You can also attempt Kenji Alt-Lopez’s version of a sweet/salty dessert utilizing a crumble or brittle to cover the ice cream. When her husband died, she moved to the city of Guiyang and started selling noodles with a sauce that she made herself. The brand is also ubiquitous, spawning Lao Gan Ma phone cases, clothing, pencil cases and the joke, according to state-owned financial news organisation Yicai China, that when a man gets married, it is to two women: his fiancee and Tao Huabi.

Lao Gan Ma crispy chilli oil dried chilli and crispy fried onion, all in a richly flavoured oil and is the most famous brand of chilli oil used throughout China. The Lao Gan Ma range gives you plenty to choose from, with different sauces giving your dishes a complex flavour profile. While you could always look for it in an Asian supermarket, it’s not something most are guaranteed to carry (or carry enough of, something I’ve learned the hard way many times). I probably go through a jar a week and need at least five stashed in my pantry or I will panic a bit.

I was in Chinatown’s Hong Kong Supermarket looking for the chilli oil they use at Tasty Hand-Pulled Noodles, a reddish-orange blend packed with dried chillies and spices. While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it is accurate, it is not a substitute for your reading the product packaging and label prior to use. All of the jars and bottles looked similar, and because I tend to trust the opinion of the masses in large, busy supermarkets, I grabbed a jar of the stuff that was most popular, one with a sticker of a not-quite-smiling Asian matriarch ( gan ma means ‘godmother’ in Chinese). Even Guizhou’s lack of “three feet of flat land” has been to her advantage: it is on steep land that “new world foods” like chillies grow best, says Brown.

If you’re looking for that signature crunch, nothing will really be a close fit, but if you’re just looking for a chili flavor, there are plenty of spicy chili oils that you can use too.

Laoganma Crispy Chilli in Oil is a popular Chinese condiment made from red chilli pepper flakes, vegetable oil, soy sauce, and other seasonings. It’s a huge favor bomb, full of umami with just the rice amount of spice to keep you going back for more. As a result, we recommend that you always read the label carefully before using or consuming any products.Add the oil, ginger, bay leaf, star anise, cinnamon, and green onions to a saucepan and heat over medium-low until it starts to bubble gently and the green onions start to brown, 5-6 minutes, or until the oil reaches 300°F. Think of a thin onion, garlic, and tomato sofrito that’s ready to eat out of the jar, no cooking necessary. Lao Gan Ma or ‘old godmother’ was founded in 1997 by Tao Huabi, the woman whose picture is on each jar! They mention that the glass pieces are everywhere, the jar lid is leaking, and the inside bubble wrap is full of oil.
