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.
White vinegar (1/2 cup)
Sugar (1 1/2 cup) (100 gms)
Garlic (10 cloves) (minced)
Red chilli flakes (3 tbsp)
Habenero sauce (1 tbsp)
Corn flour (1 tbsp)
Water (2 cups)
Salt to taste
- In a sauce pan add the vinegar, sugar and 1 cup of water and bring to boil.
- Add the garlic, chilli flakes, oregano and habenero sauce to this and cook for a few minutes over low flame.
- 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.
- Add the salt, mix well and turn off the heat. Let the sauce cool down and serve or store:)
