Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce

I love swwet and sour dipping sauce and there is always a bottle which is bought from the Asian store in my home, but then mostly they are too sweet than hot to my taste.
So I was delighted when I saw int he Wagamama Ways with noodles book.
I do have to say this dipping sauce is really hot and i mean spicy hot, it could be also of the kind of chillies I used, but I am not complaining, I like it hot ;-)
So I guess the hotness will depend on the chillies you use.
 


In the book the picture is more like a syrup, but my end result is thicker, could be also I used my hand blender, I blend it twice, once after 2 minutes and then after the full cooking was done, but next time I will use my blender or my mixer which i used for making Indiancoconut chutney's etc...so that it will be more smoother.
I made the sauce for half of the ingrrdients as I only had so much chillies here at home.



250 gm red chillies trimmed ( I used those small red thai chillies)
3 garlic cloves peeled and roughly chopped
100 gm light brown sugar
2 tsp whit wine vinegar

Compbine everything in a small pan with 100 ml water, brung to the boil and simmer over a moderate heat until soft, about 5 munites.
Blitz in a blender and season with a scant teaspoon of salt.
Return to the pan and siller for futher 10 minutes, taking care not to let it catch on the bottom.
Allow to cool and refrigerate.

The sauce looks fantastic Finla. The texture you have is perfect compared to the smoother ones. I have some chilies turning red in my plant. Now I know what to do with them.

Happy Cook / Finla said...

@Bong Mom I made them some 12 days ago and I used them today and they are still good. In the book it is written you can keep it in the fridge for long.
