How to make Chilli Oil

Make a batch of home-made chilli oil and can use it to spice up a bought pizza, add zing to a toasted cheese sandwich or turn a plate of spaghetti into something more remarkable. Put it in a decorative bottle and it becomes a gift.

Serves As many as you wish


250mls (8 fl oz) sunflower or olive oil
4 tablespoons dried red chillies



1. Gently heat the oil with the dried chillies in a saucepan. Cover and leave overnight to infuse. Carefully strain the oil into a sterilised bottle.

- You can sterilize a bottle in a hot wash in the dishwasher or wash it in soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry it in a low oven.

- If you want to make the oil even hotter, use more dried chillies. You can also use fresh chopped chillies and include the seeds for more heat.
