Cuisine:

Chinese Two Tastes Hot Pot Base is popular everywhere in China. It is designed for both spicy lover and non-spicy lover. To achieve the perfect balance, we used board bean paste (Doubanjiang) and Lao Gan Ma chili sauce as the main ingredients for spicy hot pot. On the other hand, we opted to chicken meat, garlic, and ginger to make the primary taste for plain hot pot base. It’s easy, fast and suitable for everyone.

Tips

1. Spicy hot pot base needs a lot of oil. Besides cooking oil, you can add chili oil to boost the favor.

2. For the spicy hot pot base, adding fried red pepper can enhance the strong chili taste. So prepare fried red pepper in advanced.

3. For plain hot pot base, pork bones soup is the best. Or you can use chicken bone soup instead. Do not mix the chicken powder with hot water, because it cannot make soup taste enhanced so that the food ingredient will have less taste.
