Chilli oil

Ingredients (makes 375ml)

  • 1 tbsp of ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp of whole peppercorns
  • 15 whole dried red chillies
  • 1 tbsp of Red Chilli Flakes 
  • 1 tbsp of Cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups of Oil (I use Canola) 
  • 2 Star Anise 
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp of Salt 


Toast the Ground Coriander, Black Peppercorns, Red Chilli Flakes, and Whole Red Chilli in a pan at medium high heat for 3-5 minutes or until fragrant.

In a pan, heat up 2 cups of oil with the Bay Leaf and Five Star Anise to infuse oil.

Use a separate large, heat proof container, add in the toasted spices, and garlic.

Once the oil is hot, pour the oil over the toasted spices and garlic and add salt. Mix well and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Remove the Bay Leaf and Five Star Anise before blending it in a high-speed blender for 1-2 minutes.

Pour it into a clean jar.  This can store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
