How to make chilli oil
A note on the oil - use a neutral oil like canola/rapeseed, sunflower or grapeseed as you want the only flavour to be the chilli with a hint of garlic. We like to make it in small quantities, you can scale up but it's so easy, you can make it on-demand.
Use a heavy bottom pan or skillet, heat the oil and add the garlic cloves and chilli flakes. Leave it to sizzle and cook together for a few minutes before pouring into a heatproof pot. Allow to cool and then take out the garlic cloves. And that's it! It will keep for a few weeks but tastes good drizzled on most things so may not last that long.
