Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce

If not for this Asian Food Fest Thailand, I've will never thought of making this Thai sweet chilli sauce! Moreover ready bottled one is always easy to find in all supermarket :D I love Thai sweet chilli sauce and there is always a bottle sitting in the fridge at all time :D Now I know what to do if I ever run out of this sauce as this is so simple to make from scratch! 

Simple ingredients to make the sauce! Distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, red chilli and garlic

  • 3 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded (retained the seeds if you prefer more spicy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp water

  1. Puree all ingredients, except the last two, until fine.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until the mixture thickens slightly and the garlic-pepper bits begin to soften, for about 3 minutes.
  3. Dissolve cornflour in 2 tbsp water. Stir in cornflour liquid into the sauce and cook till thickens.
  4. Cool completely before storing in a cleaned glass jar and refrigerate.
Looks tempting isn't it??
