Craving something that will tantalize your taste buds and make you crave for more and more? Do yourself a favor and make this ridiculously easy Thai sweet Chili sauce recipe. Did I tell you it tastes great on anything? I mean anything from shawarma to garlic bread and from pizza to Biryani.
After making this sauce you’ll be asking yourself why you ever bought a bottle from the store. It’s so easy and ingredients are also so easily available in your pantry.
Furthermore what makes these homemade sauces the best choice is that you know what is inside. They are preservative-free and effectively inexpensive. WOW!
I'm sharing a small recipe that'll yield only a cup of sauce. Since its spicy sauce, you can't consume too much altogether. But you can double the sauce easily if making for a party or you have a large family.
I also recommend making fresh sauce from time to time for best taste and texture and not to store it for too long since the starch in the sauce can thicken and give the sauce a lumpy look and although it still tastes great and is good to eat.
How to make it?
Keep everything in the pot except cornflour. Bring it to boil.
Add cornflour mixed with water to thicken the sauce. Enjoy!
You can preserve this sweet chili sauce in the fridge for a week. You may freeze the excess sauce. The high sugar and acid content is a preservative itself. But make sure to use the clean and sterile jar to store sauce. This little effort will preserve the sauce to stay good for many weeks. And use a clean and dry spoon to serve each time. Or simply put the sauce in a sauce bottle so there is no need to serve with a spoon and pour directly.
