Shi­itake & Peanut Burmese Chilli Jar

Rice Over Everything

Product Description

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!
