Hi Janet, a small cooking pot is perfect for making the oil! I often use it myself because I cook the chili oil in big batches. Happy cooking and hope your chili oil turns out great! Hi Barbara, yes, you can store the oil at room temperature on your counter. Just to make sure to avoid direct sunlight and use an airtight jar.
It stays good for couple weeks. I made this chili oil, but I want it to be a bit spicier. What can I do to make it spicier? Add more peppercorns? More chili flakes? Hi Maggie, the fastest way to add spiciness is to add some cayenne pepper powder to the blend before pouring in the hot oil.
If you want to make the existing jar of oil spicier, I would heat up a few tablespoons oil and cook cayenne pepper powder in it. Then blend the super spicy oil into your current jar to bring up the spiciness. I love how the rich, earthy spice complements the pepper heat. I used locally-grown santaka pepper flakes. I have been using the Korean chili flakes for a very plain, but tasty red oil, going way overboard on the flakes to get a strong pepper not hot flavor which I found wonderful. Seeing the addition of other spices to the oil opens a new door in the world of flavor.
I will try it tonight with fresh homade noodles. Been using pepper flakes, black vinegar and oil marinating in a jar to get a good topping comparable to what I got in Xian, Now that I make my own persimmon vinegar, I look forward to a much more flavorsome experience. Hi Maggie — would you ever make the chili oil using an olive oil or avocado oil instead of a vegetable oil?
Or do you recommend sticking with the grapeseed oil? I want to thank you for awakening my memories. Some of your recipes remind me of my Father, who is gone now. So good!!! I just finished the oil and am making the wontons and am looking forward to making the beans tomorrow! Such great recipes Maggie Thankyou so much! Very excited to cook over the next few weeks. I may have overlooked it, but I could not find your recommendation forsichuan chili peppers in your wonderful pantry list.
If it is not here please consider adding a referenc to your pantry list. I have purchased may of the items from there and added to MY pantry, and now I can just reach in and make many of your great recipes!!!! I did purchase sichaun chilis from Amazon. They are plump, and not crumbly dry….. I have to chop them with a knife, which is fine!! Today from your website I also made sweet chili sauce…. Realily straight forward and delish. I look forward to making this. I am definitely trying my hand at this.
I love Chinese chili oil but have only used the jar brands. This will be a treat. I also make an Italian chili oil—a recipe that has been passed down in my family. It even looks the same. What I find interesting is the crossover between Chinese cooking and Italian cooking. Very different flavors with some of the same ingredients. It seems like somewhere along the line there has been some influence between the two cuisines.
Lovely website M. Not really…but I do have the string bean chicken on the menu for tonight. Oh my god!! My kitchen smells so amazing after this. Also added star anise and a stick cinnamon. The magic was in the temperature though. Have fallen in love with it. This is a wonderful chili oil recipe. This is my first attempt at making this and it came out great.
Second attempt I left out one bay leave, and the star anise. Third attempt I left out half the toasted sesame. My forth attempt today I added one extra table spoon of chili, and only one teaspoon of 5 spice. I think adjusting to taste is the best way to decide how you like it.
Very easy to make. It is however extremely fragrant. Instead of using a ceramic bowl, I used a 2 cup pyrex measuring cup which worked just fine since the borosilicate glass can easily take the heat. The anise seed pod really kicks the flavor up a notch and adds to the complexity.
My chili oil looks and smells incredible. You are right, no more buying chili oil. Is it alright to add salt and sugar. Have not tried this yet but am excited to get it going. One question before I begin… The peppercorns are purchased whole but the recipe calls for ground peppercorns.
Could you explain this a bit more for me please? Hi Amber, I usually use my coffee grinder to ground the Sichuan peppercorns. You can use a mortar and pestle as well. If you do not wish to have a strong peppercorn taste in the chili oil, you can simply use the whole peppercorns when pouring the hot oil, then you can fish them out afterwards. I have several different chili oils but when I made this I was ready to throw the rest out! This is so amazingly good that I use it every day on everything.
Make it! Thank you for sharing this recipe Maggie. I made it for Dan Dan noodles and it was delicious! I used Korean pepper flakes which is just the right amount of heat for me. Thank you I love this. Will be making this for years to come. Thank you Maggie! I had tried to make chili oil following a different recipe elsewhere, and it ended up being a disaster. Following your steps, I was successful this time around. So excited to use this in my cooking! Delicious, fragrant and wonderful!
This recipe turned out great — simple, and really elevates chinese food made at home or takeout eaten at home: I hope to find some good chinese peanut oil, and make my next batch with that! Thank you for this excellent recipe Maggie!
We made this yesterday to serve with dan dan noodles and it was exactly as you said. We left out the optional ingredients except for the garlic and it was perfect! I used a thermometer to make sure I got the temp right and the spices and chili flakes burned immediately.
Hi Maggie, Chili oil is really good. Tried it in Cucumber Salad, in ramen and in Miso soup, goes well with everything. The first time I made this, I thought, I should give some to a friend. How will I go through so much spicy oil before it starts to go bad? I had to make a new batch three weeks later, because we started putting it on everything!
I have to make it every two weeks now. We go through a lot of it. Hi I was just wondering if could just use red pepper flakes instead because I dint want to buy Chinese chili flakes and Sichuan pepper corns. Which is more important? Chinese chili flakes are usually medium spicy so the chili oil will end up fragrant but not too hot.
The Sichuan peppercorns is not spicy at all, but has a numbing tingling taste when chew on it. That being said, you can always skip it many chili oil brands do not include it I think , but I really like its taste. This is a great recipe, thank you! How would I go about making this spicier? My family loves it however adding more chili flakes did not make it spicier as I would have expected.
Is there another ingredient I can add to increase the heat? You should use a different type of chili such as a bit cayenne powder if you want to increase the heat. This is a great recipe. A very fine recipe. We always have some in the fridge and make some fresh monthly. We use very good quality canola oil and are exact about the temperature. I just discovered your site and I love it. I have a cooking chili oil problem. Would it be possible to place the ingredients in a pot with the oil and cook at ?
I can remove the bay leaves and star anise after it cools. I find this recipe more approachable than some recipes since it calls for using a five spice mix. As a result, I was able to try making chili oil at home for the first time and it was so worth it! Thank you for sharing. This is a wonderful and easy recipe. I make extra for family members, who love it. This oil is a hit with everyone. It is so much better than the old stuff on the tables in restaurants it stuns people when they try it!
I think you can totally buy milder peppers and ground them to make your own blend. It does contain some hot pepper flakes but I never found it overwhelmingly spicy. Thanks Maggie. I also bought their Sichuan peppercorns and will make the chili oil again when this batch is gone.
Hi Tania, the oil has to be hot enough to release the flavor from the chili flakes. What you can do is to return everything into a small sauce pan, heat over medium low heat while whisking to slowly bring the oil to a simmer. Then you can let it chill completely before using it. I love this recipe!
Simple and easy to follow. I find myself adding it to everything. My parents gifted a load of chilis, which I dried and used whole out of sheer laziness. Just perfect. Can you direct me to a Japanese source, or a site where I can get more info? Thank you. Hi Barbara, the chili flake is a blend of ground up chili peppers that have different hot levels.
The only tricky part is to decide how much seeds you want to include, because the seeds are the most spicy. I needed a little reassurance on this point. More cooking notes 1 What types of chili flakes should you use? Want to Know More? Course: Main.
Cuisine: Chinese. Keyword: pantry. Prep Time: 5 minutes. Cook Time: 5 minutes. Servings: 1 cup chili oil. Instructions Combine chili flakes, five spice powder, sesame seeds, star anise, Sichuan peppercorns, and bay leaves in a heatproof ceramic bowl that can hold at least 2 cups liquid. Place the bowl on a heat resistant coaster.
Heat oil in a wok or a skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger. When the ginger starts to wither and turns golden brown, immediately turn off the heat. The oil should reach degrees F C and no higher than F C if read with an instant thermometer. Carefully pour oil or use a ladle to transfer oil into the bowl of mixed spices. The oil will bubble for a few seconds and cook the spices. When the oil cools down a bit, scoop out and discard the star anise and bay leaf. The oil is now ready to use!
Its flavor will mature if you let it rest for a day, allowing the spices to infuse into the oil. The oil can be stored covered at room temperature for two weeks, or up to six months in the fridge in an airtight container. Notes 1 To create chili oil with a beautiful red color without being too spicy, use Sichuan chili flakes.
The chili flakes are made with premium peppers that have a vibrant color with fewer chili seeds. Alternatively, if you cannot find the type, use Korean chili flakes. It is possible to use chili powder as well, but this tends to make the chili oil very spicy with a yellowish color. Serving: 1 tablespoon , Calories: kcal , Fat: 14 g. Did You Make This Recipe?
