Make your own sweet Thai chilli sauce instead of buying them off the shelves to avoid the unnecessary preservatives. The preparation is actually very easy and fast. Mainly made out of chilli, vinegar and sugar, this popular Thai dipping sauce can be found in many countries around the world. It goes well with all types of meat and even noodles.
Healthy sweet Thai chilli sauce
The sauces that are sold commercially contain a lot more sugar than necessary. By making it yourself, you can control the amount of sugar and adjust the taste accordingly. Besides that, you may substitute with other sweetener such as honey, stevia or raw brown sugar.
Spicy sweet Thai chilli sauce
Most sweet Thai chilli sauce is very mild in spiciness and rather sourish sweet to tease your taste buds. If you prefer the chilli sauce to be spicier, use bird eye chillies or leave the membranes of the cayenne chillies intact when preparing the sauce.
Storage of homemade sweet Thai chilli sauce
Homemade sweet Thai chilli sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for at least a month or two if stored in a clean and dry airtight bottle.
