Shiitake and Peanut Chilli Jar has a slightly different flavour and texture to my Original Burmese Chilli Jar. It can be used as a sauce for your main dishes — i.e., pasta, noodles & rice bowls. Perfect for vegetarian dishes.
The chilli jars are hand made by me, May. I was born in Burma and now living in Manchester with my husband and son. The chilli jars were born during lockdown from me sending them to friends and family from near and far to show that I was thinking of them when I couldn’t see them in person. The first batch was such a hit that friends started asking me to sell it to them. I’ve now expanded the range to three different flavours, for all your chilli needs!
Made by hand in Manchester

Hi, my name is May!
I am originally from Myanmar (Burma) and have been living in Manchester for 9 years now with my husband, my son, my cocker spaniel Hina and Nigel the cat.
I couldn’t cook until I was 25, but once I started I’ve never stopped since. My love affair with chilli and spicy food started when I was just 5 years old. I would beg my mum for a local fermented fish sauce dip with lots and lots of fresh chili. My mum said I used to drink the sauce!
My inspirational chili oil was from a restaurant I used to visit all the time as a student in London, called Wong Kei. I think I went there mostly for their chili oil!
My favorite thing to do in the world is to feed people. I absolutely love hosting dinner parties, which is why I would eventually love to start my own supper club, with my chilli oil at the centre of the menu! Aswell as cooking, I love boxing, yoga, running and drinking wine!
