Add oil to a small saucepan over medium-low heat and heat. Add the sesame seeds and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic and white sesame seeds are a light pale golden color about 6 minutes.

Add to a blender or food processor fitted with the blade attachment with vinegar and pulse until the chilies are finely chopped but not smooth.
