Chili garlic oil is a twist of a famous Asian condiment—chili oil. The combination of the spicy chilies and the crispy garlic bits perfectly match with dumplings, noodles, and any steamed or fried dishes. Turn any of your favorite dishes to delicious spicy treats with my version of homemade chili garlic oil.

        Hi, Dred cuan, yes you're doing the right thing. Most of the time, I eat at home, except when I am traveling. To me, homemade meal seems the best and more satisfied. Many thanks.

        Hello Miebakagh,

        Thank you for your kind words. Based on my experience, I can say that home cooking is quite different in Restaurant or Hotel cooking. So as much as I could, I'm trying to help home cooks to recreate their favorite restaurant dish within their budget. I hope I'm doing the right thing to help others.

        Hi Dred CAun, thank you. I will always watch out for your cookings. Most of the time you are coming up with exotic dishes and herbs. I had it in mind I will later make up a hub about garlic. Happy cooking!

        Hi Miebakagh,

        You are right. I love it with fried rice too. Actually, I used to eat this with any dishes. The aroma, taste and texture are really great. Glad you enjoyed it!

        Hi Dred Cuan, thanks. Just after, I post, there was a power surge, and my laptop shut down, and I went into the kitchen to practice. My family had to throw open all the living room windows! Now, I will take on your recommendation. The product is very delicious, and I enjoyed it with fried rice! I like garlic, the queen of all herbs much.

        Hi Eric,

        I haven't tried that version, but I can't see any problem of adding the two. In other countries, they have their favoured vinegars served with this chili garlic oil. For example when eating dumplings, they have a sauce mixture and they drizzle this condiment on top.

        Can I add a bit of ginger and a splash of vinegar?

        Hi Mary,

        I assure you that if you follow this recipe, you won't regret it. There is a kick of spiciness, but very tolerable. I don't like eating too spicy foods just like you. My stomach is getting upset when I eat too much food like that. LOL

        Hi Miebakagh,

        Yes, you are absolutely right! So I suggest to cook it in the oven first as it will lessen the impact of the aroma when you infuse chilies into the oil. I love garlic as well!

        I will have to try the finished product first to make sure it is not so hot I can't tolerate it. I like the taste of these chillies in Szechuan cooking.

        Hi dred cuan, I have a question here. Frying the bird eye chillies in hot oil,will give a burning smell that can affect even your neighbors sense of smell, right? What do you say?You are very good at cooking. Garlic, garlic, garlic my favorite herb!
