Hexa Sichuan Mala Rempah 150G
The unique aroma and flavor of HEXA Szechuan Peppercorn (‘Lada Sichuan’ in Malay and ‘四川花椒’ in Chinese) make it a must-have spice in your kitchen and your dishes.
It is not too hot, instead, it has slight lemony overtones and creates a tingly, pleasant numbness in your mouth.
A spice indigenous to China, Szechuan peppercorns aren’t actually pepper but are ground husks of dried red-brown berries of the prickly ash tree.
Add it as a seasoning to noodles, chicken, tofu, sauces, and soups especially used in Mala Hot Pot—a dish popular in China, and among the Chinese in Malaysia—and it will leave your mouth 'singing' with a hint of acid sweetness.
Interestingly, ""Ma"" means numb, and ""la"" means spices.
Sichuan Mala Rempah is an acquired taste that fits the 'sensitive' palates of people who cannot consume foods that are too spicy.
Besides having this 'numbing' spicy goodness, it is an exciting taste sensation that one can easily adapt to. Do be wary though of bad quality items, as the Malaysian market is flooded with products mixed with other materials.
The good news is, HEXA Szechuan Peppercorn uses good quality ingredients that taste great and are not harmful.
Convenient to store and easy to use, this spice will benefit service operators, retailers, and individual consumers who look for quality and taste.

How To Use
1) Mix 2 tbsp of HEXA Sichuan Mala Rempah with 2 tbsp of oil and make a paste.
2) Rub the paste all over the chicken (500g). Leave it in the fridge for 1-2hrs.
3) Drop the chicken pieces in a frying pan over medium-high heat for about 10-15 mins until golden and crisp (use your discretion- smaller pieces will cook faster).
4) This fried chicken is super crispy, crunchy, juicy, with a nice aroma and spiciness.
If you are health concerned, you can cook the chicken in the oven or simply grill it. This recipe is one of Hexa's best. If you don't believe me try it out!
