  • 1 ½ cup red chili minced
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 ½ tbsp peppercorn


  • Use a food processor to mince the garlic and chili separately. You can also use mortar and pestle for mincing.
  • Heat a pan over low-medium heat, add the vegetable oil. Once it is hot enough, add the peppercorn and let it cook for about 2 minutes until fragrant. Using a skimmer ladle/strainer spoon, remove the peppercorn on the pan.
  • Add the garlic, let it cook until fragrant and golden brown. Add the chili, stir occasionally and cook for another 5-7 minutes until it turns dark red. Turn off the heat and continuously stir while the oil is still hot. It's ready when it turns dark brown.
  • Store in a glass container for up to 2-4 weeks. Add it to give a little kick to your stir-fry, siomai, lugar and many others.
