##Chilli Hot Sauce Recipe – Sriracha style

Ingredients: 

  • 100 grams (~1 cup) Thai red chillies. (Use less if you wish a milder sauce). 
  • 4-5 med. cloves of Garlic (crushed or minced)
  • 2 med Shallots (minced)
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 220 gm (15 -16 oz) Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Fish Sauce 
  • 3 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar


Method:

  1. Remove stems of chillies, rinse clean. Blot dry with paper towel, mince the chilli peppers. The smaller the cut, the smoother your final sauce will be.
  2. In a saucepan, heat oil then add minced garlic and shallots. Over medium-high heat sauté for about 1 minute or until light brown and fragrant.
  3. Add tomato sauce and minced chillies. Let sauce come to a simmer then lower heat to keep at a low simmer. Add fish sauce, vinegar, and sugar. Mix well.
  4. Continue simmering sauce for about 5 minutes. 
  5. Remove from heat and allow cooling completely.
  6. Transfer sauce to blender and blend till smooth or until most of the chillie skin and seeds break down- preferably on the “liquefy” mode.
  7. Taste the hot sauce. Further customize the hot sauce to your liking: add more sugar, vinegar or water. Blend one last time till smooth.  

                            Pour into clean, air tight jar and refrigerate. Use within about 1 week.
