Chinese chili oil
Chinese chili oil is chili and spice-infused oil that is used both as a condiment and a cooking ingredient. Paprika is used to achieve the red color, and sometimes other spices such as ginger, garlic, and peppercorns are added. You can purchase a simple chili oil to add heat to stir frys, pasta and marinades.
Chinese restaurants offer a chili oil as a condiment. You can make homemade chili oil by heating peanut oil and adding dried chilis and allowing to seep. You can add other spices and a bit of sesame seed oil.
I use Chinese Chili oil in Perfect sesame noodles.
