    SO DELICIOUS! I visited NYE over the holidays and came across Mamalam’s stand at a festival and immediately fell in love with this hot sauce. It’s actually spicy and has great flavor. I add it to everything. Expect to see more shipments to Georgia MamaLam!

    Insanely delicious. It looks like I have a new obsession in addition to Mama’s curry paste and hot oil. Perfectly blended, perfectly seasoned and it brings the heat. A little goes a long way but I still use a lot. My guess is that you won’t find anything comparable anywhere outside of Malaysia and maybe not even there!

Chili de Arbol looks similar to Thai Bird’s Eye Chili but it’s not quite as hot!

Traditional Malaysian Hot Sauce

Are you looking for a savory sauce with a hot spice level? If so, then Mama Lam’s provides two great varieties: traditional Malaysian hot sauce and vegan Malaysian hot sauce. Both varieties come from the kitchen of Mama Lam – Yes, she’s a real person! She lives in New York and makes the batches alongside her daughter.

When you buy your jar of Malaysian hot sauce, know that it is jarred right in NY and ships to you from here. The idea for this popular sauce came when Mama Lam first came to the city and realized that there were not a lot of Malaysian options for hot sauces that she could use to spice up her curry paste..

Mama Lam, a Malaysian Chinese woman, was determined to create the product that she could enjoy on its own and for her curry paste, and now she has done exactly that! It wasn’t until years later, her daughters encouraged her to bring her curry paste and hot sauce to market. Her curry pastes and hot sauces are now readily available online for those who are looking to add a depth of flavor to dishes or add as a condiment to the food before serving it to family and friends.   

Mama Lam’s provides a vegan variety of hot sauce for those who choose not to eat animal products, as well as a Malaysian traditional hot sauce, which has some shrimp paste cooked into it.

This Will Be Your New Favorite Malaysian Hot Sauce From NY

Mama Lam’s Malaysian traditional hot sauce is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen! Cooked and jarred in New York, the hot sauce is great drizzled over pizza, put onto a burger, folded into scrambled eggs, whisked into sauces, and much more.

You can cook with the Malaysian traditional hot sauce, adding it to the pan on the stove or in a bowl, or add it at the end as a condiment to a range of dishes for you, your family, and guests. It contains only minimal ingredients, so you get a high-quality product at a very affordable price. It features sunflower oil, shallots, garlic, dried chili peppers, salt, and water. It also has a small amount of shrimp paste (2 percent). Shrimp paste is a fermented condiment that is made of finely crushed shrimp and also very common in 

This traditional variety comes in a 4 oz. or 8 oz. jar size. The larger of the two is terrific for serving to family or to guests at a big party. The 4 oz. jar provides about 26 servings, and the 8 oz. one is double that, providing great value.

When you are serving some people that like heat while others don’t, simply put the hot sauce on the table. Then, each person can take as much or as little as they like, depending on what they are comfortable with for the level of hotness.

When You’re Looking For Spice From NY

Upping the spice level has never been easier than opening a jar or traditional Malaysian hot sauce NY from Mama Lam’s. If you’ve had trouble finding a good hot sauce or Sambal that meets your needs, the solution is here!

The hot spice level, though, is not one that everyone will find comfortable, so we like to say. The spicy level provides the “burn” that many people crave and love, along with the savoriness that some hot sauces lack.

Once you’ve used it, simply put the lid back on and keep refrigerated until the next time you need to add a flavor punch to a meal or snack. It will last up to a year in the fridge, although you will likely find that the jar will empty before then because of its great versatility.
