Now this Chilli Oil isn’t just any quick fix condiment, although there is very little active time. 

We infuse the aromatics in the chilli oil for a an hour in the Thermomix or the stovetop. 

This adds an incredible level of depth and complexity to the flavour of the Chilli Oil.

In the SkinnyAsia Cookbook we use it in the Dumpling Dipping Sauce, Rainbow Soba Salad, Char Kway Teow, Betty’s Yum Cha Black Bean Pork and serve it with Mi Goreng or Spring Onion Pancakes.

Tip: It is best to get your chilli flakes from an Asian grocer – as they have less seeds and are not as hot!

You can deseed whole dried chillies to have full control over the heat of the Chilli Oil. Remove stems and seeds. Then add chillies to the thermo cooker or food processor and blend briefly (2 sec/speed 7/MC on) and repeat until desired consistency.
