Ma La Oil
This spicy Sichuan condiment is the secret to Andrew Zimmern’s Cold Peanut-Sesame Noodles recipe.
The Ma La Oil can be kept in a sealed jar at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Roasted peanut oil, as opposed to neutral peanut oil, smells richly nutty. Boyajin’s Fragrant Peanut Oil is available at specialty markets and from mingspantry.com.
