No, that's not lazy, but лазы, a very simple Dungan chile paste. Take about a tablespoon of crushed red pepper and put it in a bowl, then add about 5 or 6 large cloves of crushed garlic and 2 tablespoons of water. Pour in 3 tablespoons of hot oil and half a teaspoon of salt and mix.
That's an official recipe which I need to test. In the past I've just sauteed the garlic in a couple of tablespoons of oil, then added the red pepper and some salt.
I wish I'd learned to cook in metric terms. It would be so much easier to sort out recipes instead of having to translate the measurements into our silly system. But I'm planning on posting more Dungan recipes that I've found and tried on Russian websites because they're nearly impossible to find in English. Most will be from http://www.besh-barmak.ru/ and http://www.dungane.kz/rus/01/#.
