  • ¼ tsp ¼ Ground White pepper (replace with black pepper or skip as desired)

  • 1 tsp 1 White sesame seeds (toasted)

  • ½ tsp ½ Italian Seasoning (optional)

  • Other Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp 2 Avocado Oil (or any other neutral oil with a higher smoke point like canola oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil or soybean oil)

  • 2 tsp 2 Soy sauce

  • ½ tsp ½ Tomato ketchup (optional)

  • 1 1 Small Shallot

  • For Serving
  • Ramen noodles (1 cooked noodle cake boiled in hot water according to package instructions)

  • 1 1 Fried egg

  • Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)



  • Preparation
  • Start by chopping the two cloves of garlic and shallot as fine as possible.
  • Put them into the mixing bowl along with the green part of finely chopped green onions.
  • Add the rest of the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl – homemade ramen seasoning or the premade seasoning sachet, ground white pepper, red chili flakes, Italian seasoning, and toasted white sesame seeds.
  • Combine everything until well incorporated and set this mixture aside until needed.

  • Making The Saucy And Spicy Chili Oil
  • Now, in a small frying pan, heat the two tablespoons of avocado oil until smoking hot.
  • Remove the pan from the stove and carefully pour it into the spice mixture you prepared earlier.
  • Whisk the hot oil and the spice mixture thoroughly until everything comes finely.
  • Add the soy sauce and tomato ketchup (if using) and mix well to combine.
  • Your saucy and spicy chili oil is now ready. Mix this with the cooked ramen noodles until all the noodle strands are well coated in the oil.
  • Top with anything you like such as shredded cheese, fried eggs, and the chopped white part of the green onion. Serve warm!

Tasty Notes and Suggestions by SpiceRally

  • Please note that this chili oil is hot and spicy in its own way. Therefore, you can adjust the red chile flakes in your recipe, if you prefer less heat.
  • Reduce the amount of garlic and shallots if you don’t like too much aromatics in your chili oil.
  • You may also use a half teaspoon of tomato powder instead of tomato ketchup. It gives a beautiful tangy and umami touch to this chili oil. But it would be totally fine to skip these ingredients.
  • Remember that this chili oil is for one packet of ramen noodles. You can double the amounts and make a larger batch if you make a larger quantity of ramen.
  • Throw in a dash of hot sauce if you prefer more heat in your recipe.
  • Choose ramen seasoning with vegan-friendly ingredients if you need to make a vegan version of this saucy and spicy chili oil.

Is This Spicy and Saucy Chili Oil Recipe Vegan-friendly?

Our spicy chili oil is NOT suitable for vegans since chicken bullion powder is contained in the homemade ramen seasoning we use. As mentioned above, you can use a vegan-friendly ramen seasoning if you prefer a vegan chili oil. If you’re using any premade seasoning sachets, make sure they do not contain non-vegan ingredients.

Can Keto Dieters Include This Chili Oil In Their Diet?

In addition, this recipe does not contain excessive carbs, which makes it undoubtedly a great addition to the menu of any keto dieter. You can incorporate this with meat, fish, and seafood to have a tasty twist of flavor!

Is this Spicy and Saucy Chili Oil Recipe Gluten-free?

This recipe is NOT gluten-free since we have used soy sauce and tomato ketchup. Apart from that, if you use the seasoning packet from the ramen packet, it could also contain traces of gluten.
