Homemade Flavored Virgin Olive Oil
The other day I received this awesome box from THE OLIVE TREE TRADING COMPANY which had 1 bottle of Olive oil, 1 bottle of Extra Virgin Oil n also 2 MILK PACKS about which I will be writing later!
I love Olive oil be it plain or virgin; I make a lot of Flavoured Virgin OILs to garnish my salads, pasta, pizzas, pilafs n many more.
I thought of using the Olive Trading Company Extra Virgin Oil to make my Flavoured Oils incorporating Garlic, Red Chillies, Parsley and Lemon.
The Flavours turned out awesomely Piquant n Sharp which showed the high quality of the Oil!
I have to share this Recipe so that U can make n enjoy these different oils as much as I do!
For the CHILLI GARLIC BASIL OIL-
- 1 cup Extra Virgin Oil
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 2 dry Kashmiri chilli/ or any other dry chilli
- 5 basil leaves
Heat the oil in a pan till just about heated, then add the garlic, basil and the chillies and let it sizzle for about 2 mins on a slow flame, then put off the gas, let the oil with the garlic, basil and chillies cool down completely.
Now fill this oil in a glass bottle and store, if you are not going to consume it immediately then keep it in the refrigerator, it will last for almost a month, take it out an hour before serving!
In the same way, you can also make your other oils like Parsley n lemon or only garlic or basil or even have a combination of any the herbs with peppercorns!!!
Just drizzle this oil on any of your favourite dishes n see how it enhances the taste!!
