  • Cover with a cloth and leave to rest for 24 hours. This enables the spices to infuse and the sugar and salt to melt.

  • Heat the mustard oil in a frying pan and gently fry the spice mixture for about 5 minutes (keep a window open while cooking with mustard oil as it is pungent and the smoke may irritate the eyes).

  • Add the garlic cloves and fry for a further 5 minutes.

  • Add the chilies and cook gently until tender but still green in color. This will take about 30 minutes on low heat.

  • Cool thoroughly, then pour into sterilized bottles, ensuring the oil is evenly distributed if you are using more than one bottle.

  • Leave to rest for a week before serving.
