Chili Oil

This simple chili oil recipe requires only several ingredients: oil, pepper flakes, ginger, garlic, and salt.
The chili oil is perfect for dumplings, noodles, and pretty much any dish that you think can use a bit of spice.

I minced ginger and garlic finely and added these spices to a bowl that, I filled with pepper flakes and some salt. Then, I heated oil for 3-4 minutes before pouring the oil over the spices.

Ingredients

  • Hot red pepper flakes –  3 tbsp
  • Finely minced ginger – 1 tbsp
  • Finely minced garlic – 2 tbsp
  • Salt as per taste
  • Neutral Oil – 1 cup

Method

  • Add all the ingredients into a stainless steel or thick ceramic bowl, make sure it is heat proof
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • When you swirl the oil, it should look thin, just like the consistency of water. Turn off the heat.
  • Carefully pour the hot oil into the bowl with the spices.
  • The oil will sizzle a lot first hits the spices and then fizzle as it cools.
  • Let the oil reach room temperature (about 20 to 30 minutes).
  • If you are apprehensive about pouring hot oil into a bowl, pour the spices into the saucepan instead to prevent the spices from burning, make sure to take the saucepan is off the stove before adding the spices.
  • Swirl the spices with a wooden spoon for about a minute.
  • Give the oil a stir before serving.
  • Drizzle the oil over noodles or dumplings and spoon some of the chili flakes onto any dish.
  • To store, transfer the oil into a sterilized jar and refrigerate. Try to use the oil within 1 to 2 weeks.
