In saucepan, heat 3 tbsp of the vegetable oil over medium heat; cook garlic and  ai peppers, stirring, until garlic is fragrant and  ai peppers are so softened, about 2 minutes. Add remaining vegetable oil and sesame oil; cook until oil is warm but not hot. Let cool completely, about1 hour.

Strain oil through fine-mesh sieve; discard solids. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
