Chili oil recipe (quick)
This quick recipe for chili oil make a small amount for a single dish.
We have a slightly more elaborate version too.
- Heat the oil and chili powder in a small pan until it foams
- Simmer for 3 minutes
- Allow to cool completely
- Strain the oil, discarding the sediment
I made a slightly more interesting version using a bottle of Morrisons Szechuan pepper oil (and some of the pepper 'sludge') instead of the groundnut oil. The Szechuan pepper gives a wonderful 'warmth' and the chillies, a 'hot' hit. Very good indeed - A big batch to be made next time!
