- Heat the olive oil and chilli flakes in a large pan over a low heat for 5 minutes, making sure the oil doesn’t start to smoke. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes, then pour into a sterilised glass bottle or bottles. Insert the long dried chillies into the neck of the bottle, then seal.
Leave the oil to infuse for at least 1 week but preferably for 2-3 weeks. The chilli oil will keep for up to 6 months.
