“Necessity is the mother of invention”

Our chilli oil was created one fateful evening, when a lonely platter of dim sums demanded a delicious companion. What followed was the creation of a condiment that played nicely with everything we threw its way, from Spaghetti to Samosas. We soon realized that a homegrown recipe that saw so much love from family and friends simply had to be shared with the world, and just like that, Hotchaa! was born – we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Hotchaa! is a product from Anali Enterprises LLP, a family run business operated by Alisha, Anita, and Sid Shirodkar.

Meet Bombaa

The hero behind Hotchaa’s vision

By turns, a chilli-oil connoisseur, a culinary enthusiast, a loveable oddball, and not least, an embodiment of the maxim that we could all use some more spice in our lives. But don’t let his whimsical demeanor fool you – Bomba is wise as he is wide, and all that spice-fuelled wisdom has trickled over time into the hallowed chilli-oil he stewards with a dutiful eye but a playful heart, all in service of doing something good for the world the only way he has ever known – through the potent magic of chillanthropy.
