Last year a friend came over and he made me this. I loved it so much, but I don’t know exactly how he made it. So I tried to recreate it and this is it. I think it comes very close. I love this so much, because you can use it for everything. I put it over rice (this is so good!), pasta, salads, dip in my toast.. it’s good with everything really. I really love the taste of sesame (I’m quite obsessed with sesame oil), so to have whole toasted sesame seeds in this, just makes it perfect to me. It’s called Spicy Magic, but you decide how spicy. You can even leave the chilli flakes out if you’re not the type who enjoys chillis. Or you can add an extra tbs if you love the burn! I always add 2-3 tbs myself. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Serves: a lot!
500 ml extra virgin olive oil
3-4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup sesame seed
1-3 tbs chilli flakes
-Fry the garlic and the sesame seeds in a bit of oil until you can slightly see the garlic change colour (about 1 min. pay attention, because the garlic can quickly go too brown!).
-Add the rest of the oil and the chilli flakes.
-Turn down the heat to very low and leave it for about 10-15 min. Make sure to stir once in a while. It’s ok for slow, small bubbles to appear, but do not let it fully cook.
-Store it in a glass jar, in the fridge.
Are you the spicy type? Or will you leave the chilli flakes out? Please let me know where you are going to use it for. Tag me on Instagram or use the hashtag #planetmanel. Thank you! X
