Mala xiang guo (spicy numbing stir-fry)

Recently, I have been addicted to “mala xiang guo” (麻辣香锅) aka spicy numbing stir-fry, a dish of Sichuan origins. This is a great recipe for having lots of ingredients in one bowl and just like hot pot, it’s useful for clearing the leftovers in the fridge. My family loves the home-cooked version which has the just the right amount of numbness (“麻”) from the Sichuan peppercorns and heat (“辣”) from the dried chillis.
