Who is Somjit?
My name is Somjit and this is my family recipe Thai chilli oil.
Yes, I am real! And I live in Trang, a beautiful province in Thailand surrounded by sandy beaches, Jurassic Park-Esque jungles, and of course, an eclectic mix of cuisine!
Growing up in Trang I am privileged to be clued into some of the most delicious Thai, Malay & Chinese foods thanks to such a varied mix of both cultures down here. However, no matter what, my Mum would make me put our special homemade Chilli Oil on whatever dish I was to enjoy just to give it a bit of extra punch.
I truly hope you enjoy tucking into it as much as I do.
What can I use it with?
Rice crackers, curries, stir-frys, toasted baguettes, pasta, fried rice, chips or fries, grilled aubergines, patatas bravas, dark chocolate, olives, PIZZA, okonomiyaki, dumplings, fish & chips, roast dinner, roast med vege, grilled octopus, stuffed peppers, edamame, lamb chops, inside your gravy, salads, salad dressing, prawns, nachos, burgers, hot dogs, chow mein, tagine, samosas, poke, masala, sushi, papadoms, sashimi, fruit de mer, ratatouille, steak, cheese & crackers, moules-frites, bratwurst, smorgasbord, sustromming, stroganoff, goulash, nasi goreng, poutine...
So basically: Anything.
Somjits is so versatile it can be used as a base ingredient, condiment, dip or as a mule kick to your dish so with Somjits the culinary world really is your oyster.
(Yes you can put it on oyster).
We love the word No...
At Somjits Sauces we love the word no...
E-numbers, MSG, GMO's, additives, preservatives, meat products, major allergens, gimmicks, marketing ploys, shortcuts.
Somjits Chilli Oil has none and says no to all of the above, yet bursts with delectable bits, high spice and flavour - we're also vegan as-well-as gluten & major allergen-free, We only use sunflower oil which contains low amounts of saturated fats and has high sources of Vitamin E & K.
As advertised, gives that much needed kick if your looking for the extra heat!
I have to say, I was just curious as chili oil is just that chili cooked in oil, but this does have a unique fragrant smell and taste which I assume is the southern Thai chilis that differ to the northern types!
