    So this wasn’t spicy at all for me. Perhaps I am using the wrong kind of chili flakes because it tasted like slightly flavorful oil when it was done

    The chili flakes were crunchy instead of soft like when I get it at Chinese restaurants. What did I do wrong? I used a Chinese brand of chili flake, should I have used a ground chili instead? Thank you.
