Spicy Chicken Pot

Cuisine: Chinese  |   Prep Time: 40 minutes  |  Cook Time: 30 minutes   |   Serve: 2 to 3 persons

Have you tried Spicy Chicken Pot? It’s considered a fairly new dish (few years) with the ever-growing Szechuan style hot pot and this is one of them. In my opinion, this dish is a combination of the Mala and oyster sauce flavour which quickly became one of my favourites. Here is a simplified version of the Spicy Chicken Hot Pot that you too can try making!

Mala Grilled Fish

Cuisine: Chong Qing, China   |   Prep Time: 20 minutes  |  Cook Time: 40 minutes   |   Serve: 2 to 3 persons

Mala Grilled Fish – origins Chong Qing, China. Famously made with the spicy and numbing Szechuan peppercorn. Mala has been around for some time now and I got introduced to this dish by my husband who is addicted to it! During this #stayathome period we couldn’t enjoy it in a restaurant, so to fulfil his cravings I’ve made my own homemade Mala Grilled Fish or some may call it Chong Qing Grilled Fish.

It’s spicy, numbing and fragrant, you’ll be hooked!
