|Ingredients:||2/3 c dried chili flakes
1-1/2 c water
1 c oil
10 cloves garlic, chopped
1-1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
|Preparation:||Mix chili with water in small saucepan, bring to boil, reduce heat to medium-high & cook until water completely boils away. Stir & cook another minute to dry flakes.
In medium saucepan over high heat combine everything. When hot, simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool, pour into jar, refrigerate. Keeps a long time (months).
|Notes:||It's frugal & easy to make yourself if you can get good hot dried chiles.
This recipe is somewhat oilier than the store-bought stuff.
As a condiment, you can either spoon just the oil, or the stuff that settles to the bottom.
