By Aug 9, 2021 Announcement

We’ve teamed up with local spice lovers, Curious Elephant, to offer 5 of our lucky customers the chance to win a set of 3 signature sauces, worth AED 160! Read on to find out more!

At Hello Chef, we believe in bringing big flavours to every magical mealtime. With so many diverse ingredients at our fingertips, we strive to bring innovative and mouth-watering recipes to your door week in, week out. 

For some, the definition of ‘flavour’ comes from one ingredient in particular: smokin’ hot, eye-watering chillies. While our recipes typically verge on the side of caution when it comes to heat, we encourage customers to tailor each dish to their taste, should they crave that extra kick. 

Does this sound like you? If so, we have some exciting news to share! Those who love spice may have already heard of the not-for-the-faint-hearted sauces from Curious Elephant, and we have teamed up with them to offer 5 lucky Hello Chef customers the chance to win a set of their signature products.

This Dubai-based company is the brainchild of self-confessed foodie Melody Mok. Following an abrupt redundancy from a corporate role in the early days of the pandemic, Melody decided there was no better time to share her passion for all-things-chilli with the UAE food community, and the business has gone from strength-to-strength ever since. 

The three sauces currently available in the Curious Elephant range make great store cupboard essentials for spice lovers. Fancy getting your hands on a set? Fill out the quiz below to be in with a chance of winning!

If you already have a set at home or you’re wondering how to use the sauces in our recipes, here are a few suggestions from our recipe development team…

Creamy Sesame Miso Ramen with Prawns and Crispy Mushrooms

Add a dash of heat to this creamy umami broth with the Chinese Chilli Oil, made with sichuan peppers and peanuts. Described as “boldly aromatic and tingly,” a little goes a long way with this one!

Mie Goreng with Prawns

Our take on this popular Indonesian dish is mild and works perfectly with a spoonful of Malaysian Chilli Sambal, made with shrimp and kaffir limes. Its tangy flavour is a great contrast to the sweet noodle sauce.

Satay Chicken Skewers with Jasmine Rice and Pickled Cucumbers

With its zingy, citrus notes and the sweetness of garlic and onions, the Vietnamese Chilli Sauce will add a subtle kick to the creamy, satay sauce in this recipe. It’s fragrant, spicy and deliciously aromatic – what more could you ask for?
