Chinese Sweet Chilli Sauce Recipe

Sweet Chilli Sauce


1 lbs fresh red chilies

Ingredients A:

1 small piece shrimp paste

3 ½ oz dried chilies

3 oz ginger

1 ½ oz raisins

1 ½ ozs garlic

½ quart water

10 oz sugar

3 tbsp salt

¾ cup vinegar


Remove the stems of the fresh chilies, wash and drain.

Blend all the ingredients A with half of the red chilies. Add some water. Blend till you have a fine texture. Add in the rest of the chilies and continue to blend till fine.

Combine the water, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Bring to the boil. Add in the blended chili mixture and simmer for 30 mins on a very low heat. Stir occasionally to prevent the bottom from sticking.

When the sauce is quite thick, pour in the vinegar and simmer for another 5 mins.

Leave to cool in a large bowl before storing in dry, clean bottles.
