Sweet Asian chili sauce for Thai food

An easy sweet Asian chili sauce recipe. Sweet chili sauce is a common Thai dipping for fried or grilled meats (chicken, fish, fried meatball, etc.) The sweet and sour taste will reduce the greasy of the dish. The chili also add your appetize. This sauce is not so hot, just mild spicy.

Homemade sweet and sour sauce
Sweet Asian chili sauce
4 Red goat chili, picked out all the seeds
12 Bird’s eye chili
4 cloves Garlic
½ ts. Salt
½ cup Vinegar
1 ts. Sugar

  1. Blend bird’s eye chili, goat chili, garlic, and salt.
  2. Add vinegar and sugar with the blended ingredients. Stir till all the ingredient thoroughly mixed.
This sauce is sweet and not so spicy. I have heard that some foreingers use this sauce as a dressing for their salad. They stock this instant sweet chili sauce for 4-5 bolttles in their refrigerator! 

There are some instant sweet Asian chili sauce brands selling in the market. The most well known for Thais is "Mae Pranom". However, I have not see this brand selling on the net. You can use "Pantainorasing" brand instead. This is another good brand. Amazon also has it. Another good brand is "Mae Ploy" which has many sizes for you. I will review about all these brands later.
