Chili Oil

Chili Oil

If you are a spice lover like myself, I am pretty sure this recipe will stay with you forever. This chili oil goes with everything. I enjoy it with my dumplings and noodles, drizzle it on scrambled eggs and use it on avocado toast. I use it to top my ramen soups and rice bowls. I sometimes even drizzle it on vanilla ice cream! You probably get the point, you can add this to anything!

Two good things about this condiment – first, making it is extremely simple. Yes, you will be handling hot oil, so I would not trust a kid alone with this recipe, but the process is very straightforward. Second, it keeps for more or less forever. Well, that is the theory because in my case the batch is finished within a few months. Actually, there is a third thing, and the chili oil makes a wonderful gift to give your heat-loving friend.

So, if you are ready to change your life forever give this recipe a go!

Chili Oil: You can add to anything!

Cooking time: minutes


2 anise stars

1 small stick of cinnamon

2 bay leaves

4 cloves

1 small onion, peeled and quartered

2 ½ cups rapeseed oil

2 cups chili flakes

½ tsp salt


Place everything besides the chili and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Lower the heat and let the oil infuse for around 30 minutes.

At the same time, place the chili flakes and salt into a BIG heatproof bowl. Big, as you do not want the hot oil splashing over!

Once the oil has been infused, pour it through a sieve over the chili flakes and mix.

Jar/bottle up and keep at room temperature up to a few months.
