Homemade Chilli Oil Recipe / Chilli Oil Recipe

I have been planning to make singapore fried rice for a while. Then i found that it need chilli oil in it. So kind of stayed away from it because of lazyness. But i started receiving mails from lots of viewers asking for this recipe. So decided to try it out..

As a first step i made the oil, then i used that in the rice and it was really good. I started using that oil in my other curries and finished it. You can drizzle a little bit of this oil in the soups too to give it a little kick. So try this out and let me know how it turned out..
