Mama Teav’s Original Hot Garlic was born out of a brother and sister’s love and appreciation for their mother’s Cambodian home cooking. This spicy condiment stars organic, California-grown garlic coarsely chopped and fried in grapeseed oil until golden and crispy. Its pronounced heat comes from fire-roasted Cambodian chiles while a supporting cast of umami-laden spices, including mushroom powder and celery salt, provide a savory backdrop. This crunchy, garlicky and versatile condiment can be added to anything in need of a fiery kick.
Use Original Hot Garlic as your go-to condiment to spice up countless meals. Drizzle over steamed rice, swirl over hummus, dab it onto pizza and so much more.
