POON'S Extraordinary Chilli Oil

An aromatic chilli oil infused with the intense flavours of salted black beans. My father has been making batches of this for his friends for the longest time. They collect jam jars and send them to him to be filled. Every so often, he makes it super crazy macho hot which he loves. It’s a bit of a test. It brings tears to my eyes and all I can do thereafter is eat yoghurt and spoonfuls of honey to calm the searing heat, but there are those with stronger chilli palates than mine who love it. I served it to Helen Goh at a steam-boat dinner I hosted and she almost licked the jar, asking if she could buy some. That’s when I decided to bottle it. It’s unusual in that it uses salted black beans which gives the oil a real depth and intensity beyond just heat.

Use as you would any chilli oil. Simply stirred through some thick wheat noodles, wet still from the noodle water, it’s the Chinese version of Spaghetti aglio e olio.
