Easy Level:

Hello everyone – with the CNY coming up, here is a hotpot recipe that’s FULL of goodness!
As Singaporeans, there is no doubt we love spicy food…  so we decided on a mala soup base today! Regardless of whether you like Xiao La, Zhong La, or Da La, this recipe is bound to get your senses tingling. Konnyaku and Japanese vermicelli has been put in the pot as well, that goes oh so well with the spicy mala soup base.
We used various products from DoDo for the hotpot ingredients, and given the variety of products, it’s no doubt that there’s something for everyone.
You can find DoDo’s products and purchase from their CNY promotions: https://shop.enjoydodo.com/collections/whats-new
