HOW TO MAKE CHILI GARLIC OIL

Start with harvesting the red chilies. Choose only the red ones, and leave the green ones in the plant to grow. Remove the stalks and wash them. Simply combine the chilies with the other ingredients to a blender or food processor. This would result to a red liquid with bits of red chilies.

Heat this mixture to cook the chilies. This step may take up to 20 minutes since we can only use low heat to avoid burning. To enhance the flavor of the sauce, I used some salt, pepper, sugar, oyster sauce and vinegar. After the chilies turned dark red, that’s when you know it’s ready.
