Thai red chilli sauce



This is Thai style hot and sweet sauce recipe, traditionally this sauce is made a little thinner than my version but i make it a little thick, this sauce is packed with strong flavors of red chilli and garlic along with a beautiful sweetness that is just perfect. You can serve this as a dip with spring rolls, stir fries or grilled chicken i personally love it with tempura chicken fingers. This sauce can also be used as a substitute to your regular chilli sauce in any dish, if you don't add the corn flour (which helps thicken the sauce) it also works  beautifully as a salad dressing.

Ingredients:

White vinegar (1/2 cup)
Sugar (1 1/2 cup) (100 gms)
Garlic (10 cloves) (minced)
Red chilli flakes (3 tbsp)
Oregano (1tspn)
Habenero sauce (1 tbsp)
Corn flour (1 tbsp)
Water (2 cups)
Salt to taste

Method:
  1. In a sauce pan add the vinegar, sugar and 1 cup of water and bring to boil.
  2. Add the garlic, chilli flakes, oregano and habenero sauce to this and cook for a few minutes over low flame.
  3. Mix the corn flour in 1 tbsp of water in a separate bowl and slowly add this to the sauce while stirring. The sauce will start thickening at this point. Cook till you reach the desired consistency.
  4. Add the salt, mix well and turn off the heat. Let the sauce cool down and serve or store:)
