Nothing fancy here. It's just a garlic ginger chillie hot sauce. A chicken rice hot sauce. All you need is a blender and a swoosh and it's done.

Ju made this exact sauce a couple of days ago as well. I'm not surprised if we had made and photographed it on the very same day. We share the same vibes. I believe that this is the third time we've made similar food and posted it within a whisker's post of each other's. It's one of those strange but true occurrences. 

This hot sauce is great with steam boats, chicken rice, stir fried noodles, rice, soups, as a dipping for fritters. Anything and everything I suppose. Whatever makes you happy and whenever your palate needs a bit of a kick.

Its kind of sour and spicy with a very subtle tinge of sweetness to it. Very very very appetizing.

The recipe ~

10 chillies plus some/many bird's eye chillies if you like
6-7 pips garlic, peeled
1 inch ginger, peeled
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 T sugar
salt to taste

Wash and ch0p chillies into chunks. De-seed them if you wish. Put chillies and everything else in a  blender and blitz until it becomes a thick sauce. Add salt to taste. Store in a jar and better still in the refrigerator.

I always got my chilli sauce from the stores....and I kept telling myself I would make my own chilli next time...and this morning I still went to the store and get Knorr garlic chilli sauce.
Thanks, zurin, for sharing the recipe.

Hehehehehe ... I really am amazed at how we seem to read each other's minds, Zurin. ;) Your sauce looks yum yum and tastes yum yum (I have the same sauce, so I can vouch for that)! ;)

wow - amazing photos Zurin

Chilli sauce looks lovely. Would have gone really well with the kebabs I made tonight. Ju's looks awesome too

Looks so easy too - I'll maybe try this. I think Ju's needed red bean curd and that's not something I can easily get around here.

I love sambal, it's such a great condiment. I love eating with rice and other meat dishes :)!

Like I had commented at Ju's, a good chili sauce recipe is a gem. This must be one of those as I have already have 2 testimonies for it.

The sauce sounds great and your photos are gorgeous! Good job!

Mmm, I LOVE this sauce with chicken rice. Pity my kids don't like chilli, so I usually just use bottled sauce (shame!).

Dorrie said...

Your sauce looks delicious, and I would like to make it. Bus what is a pip of garlic? A clove, or a bulb, or something else?

Do you think this sauce goes with cooked fish, too?

Zurin said...
