Crispy Chilli Oil

Makes a lot Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:


We have been meaning to create our own version of this for ages, no Thermomix required. So we were delighted when Murray River Salt included it on their list of videos recipes to be produced for them.

Here it is, don't be shy with the sesame seeds, add toasted and crushed cashews or peanuts to thicken it up if you wish. It is amazing!

Drizzle cautiously on;

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Indian Chilli Cheese Toast (Eggs Kejriwal)

Eleven Herbs and Spices Fried Chicken

Beef Basil Stir Fry

Chinese Spicy Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Fresh Rice Noodles

Fresh Rice Paper Rolls


Roast nuts in a little drizzle of this...amazing.

Use instead of EVOO for a stir fry.

Add the oil to a wok along with the chillies, shallot, garlic, peppercorns. Add the cinnamon stick and star anise.


Heat the oil to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the ingredients in the pot are browned and crispy. The timing can vary based on the heat of the oil, do not try and hurry this process.


Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes or longer. The flavours will infuse the oil even further.


In a separate heat-proof bowl, mix together the chili flakes, paprika, soy sauce, sugar and salt.


Strain the oil into the chili flake mixture. Reserve the crispy chilli-shallot-garlic bits in the strainer and set them aside for now to cool, which will allow them to fully crisp up.


Discard the cinnamon stick and star anise pods, then swirl the crispy bits back into the oil.


When cool, stir through toasted sesame seeds.


Store in an airtight jar at room temperature and use as needed in small amounts on noodles, eggs, over chicken or fish, or as a condiment on demand.
