Lately, I have been a great fan of this condiment, the Sweet Thai Chilli Sauce. As the name suggests, it is sweet and we love all things sweet, don't we?! It is proven that this is the most common chilli sauce available as it can even be found in Europe. I personally love dipping french fries into this sauce. Yes, seriously!
You can have this sauce with all types of meat or even noodles. Instead of buying a bottle of ready made sauce, why not make your own and adjust the ingredients according to your taste. The commercial sauces always contain a lot more sugar then needed. By making it yourself, you can control the amount of sugar and adjust the taste accordingly.
If you prefer this sauce to be more spicy, choose bird eye chillies or leave the membrane of the cayenne chillies intact when preparing the sauce. Otherwise, this sauce is supposed to be very mild in spiciness but is rather sweet and slightly sourish to tease your taste buds.
Sweet Thai Chilli Sauce is also known as: Sos Cili Thai
Stir vinegar, sugar, chillies, garlic and ginger in a small pot and cook over medium to low heat. Cook until sugar dissolves. Add water to the pan and let it simmer for at least 5 minutes to release the flavours of the ingredients.
Optionally, press chillies against the pan to extract the colour and spiciness of the chillies. Add in corn flour and water mixture to thicken the sauce. Set aside to cool.
