Mix oil, shallots, garlic, red peppers, cinnamon sticks and black pepper in medium saucepan. Bring to simmer on medium heat. Simmer 12 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until shallots and garlic are deep golden brown.
Mix crushed red pepper and remaining ingredients in large heat-safe bowl. Strain fried shallot mixture through fine mesh sieve, draining hot oil into bowl with crushed red pepper mixture.
