The Ingredients For Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce
The ingredients for your sweet chilli sauce are as follows, and there are alternative ingredients you can use:
- 1 ½ cups of sugar
- 3 Tablespoons if garlic
- 1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper/Kashmiri red chilli powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 cu and a bit of water
- ½ cup of vinegar/apple cider
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour/corn starch
- 3 tablespoons of chilli paste/red chilli flakes
The first step is to chop the garlic and pepper finely, mix them together, and put them in a saucepan. You will then need to add the sugar, soy sauce, salt, vinegar, and water to the pan and bring it to a simmer for about three or four minutes. You will want to stir the mixture occasionally and wait for the sugar to dissolve completely, and it starts to reduce.
You will now need to add the chilli paste to the mixture and stir this in thoroughly. Once the chilli paste is mixed in, let the mixture simmer for another two or three minutes.
Now take the corn flour and water and mix this in a bowl until there are no lumps, and the mixture is smooth, and then add this to the saucepan. Turn up the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring it continuously, and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for two or three minutes. Once the sauce is thick, has a shine and is translucent, you can turn off the heat.
Let the mixture cool down, and it is ready to be served with your favourite food. You can also put this in a sealable jar and keep it in the fridge, which will last for about one month.
