First I pierced the chili place it along with the rest of the ingredients in a pot and brought to a simmer heating the oil as to help kill any bacteria on the added ingredients. Be sure to pierce or slice the chili or it will burst open. The oil is lightly flavored with the lemongrass and cilantro then you feel the heat from the chili. I enjoyed this. Just refrigerate to prevent it from going rancid.
