Today I have been making fresh chilli sauce a la Kylie Kwong. The recipe is from here , and YES this is the crazy-bountiful sauce Kyles made on Masterchef! It is really delicious and super spicy and sweet and most of this batch is for this gal! I quadrupled the recipe, because I like a LOT of chilli in my house! I am totes spicy, ya know? Yep.
Kylie Kwong's Divine Homemade Chilli Sauce
Homemade Chilli Sauce
Makes 1/2 cup (125 ml)
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) peanut oil
- 4 long red chillies, roughly chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 7 cm knob ginger, roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon tamari
Pound chillies, garlic and ginger to a paste using a pestle and mortar.
Heat oil in a wok until moderately hot. Add paste and cook, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes. Add sugar and stir for 1 minute or until sugar caramelises, then stir through tamari. Reduce heat to low and cook, still stirring, for a further 5 minutes. The chilli sauce can be used straight away, or allowed to cool and then stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
