Homemade dips and sauces are one of the items that you can always find on my kitchen shelf. I love making a variety of sauces from scratch, it gives snacks and finger food new dimension. One such preferred D-I-Y sauce recipe is Thai Sweet Chili Sauce. It is so versatile that we can’t have enough of it. You can toss vegetables in it for a quick stir-fry, marinate the chicken in it for Asian grill or serve it as a dipping sauce for Chinese snacks and dumplings. It is one of my most reached sauces in the kitchen. Thai Sweet Chili Sauce Recipe is the amalgamation of all tantalizing flavors – spicy, sweet, and garlicky. How one can say no to it?
Thai Sweet Chili Sauce is really addictive in a positive way, once you taste it craving to have more never ends. It has all the qualities of a perfect sauce; it has hotness of red chilies, the sweetness of sugar, the flavor of garlic and sourness of vinegar. And the best part if it lasts in the fridge for approximately 30 days. Though in my house it gets over within the 15 days. We love to dip the Tibetan dumplings (momo) in it and the combination is heavenly.
Bottom line, if you love marinara sauce, I can’t recommend making a homemade batch enough. It is comforting from the start to the delicious finish. And you can rest easy as well knowing exactly what goes into this, versus some of the mystery, unhealthy ingredients on labels at the store.
