Chili oil is simply oil that has been infused with the flavour of chili peppers. For preparing this oil just chopped this chili and put in hot oil till to cool. You can use olive oil to instead of canola oil. Chili oil can add extra heat to many dishes. You can use it in the cooking process to add a spicy kick early on, or drizzle it over a finished food such Chinese or Punjabi food for tempering if the meal is not hot enough to suit your taste. You can store chili oil for several months in the refrigerator.
