They sell crushed red pepper here that's good for lazy. It's in fairly large flakes. You can use more finely ground red pepper, or you can crush whole dried peppers in a blender or a mortar and pestle. I'm not really picky about what kind of peppers or ground pepper you use. In the US I'll crush my own Thai red peppers. You don't have to remove the seeds.
Here's what you'll need:
- Equal parts crushed red pepper, minced garlic, and vegetable oil (all these can be adjusted)
- 1/2 tsp salt per 2 tablespoons pepper (that makes a slightly salty paste- less salt is more typical here, but I like to bring out the flavor of the garlic)
|Combine the minced garlic and red pepper in a small bowl. This is just one tablespoon of each because that's how much garlic I had in the house, but usually I make lazy with 2-4 tablespoons of each.|
|Combine. Meanwhile, put the oil in a tiny pot and heat it till it's start to sizzle. Don't let it burn.|
|Then add the oil to the pepper and garlic. It was hard to get a picture of this part because the oil was hot.|
|And add your salt.|
