Homemade Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce

Perfect and easy

I tested this recipe, following it scrupulously.

At first it seemed to me that the amount of sugar was very important.

However, the amount of peppers provides a perfect balance between spiciness and sweetness.

Quick recipe, perfect for dips, or to dress salad, spring rolls etc…

A delight, I highly recommend.

I also tested with the juice of half a lime. Excellent !

Brilliant

I’m only reviewing now but I’ve been making this recipe for about 3 years now, it’s fantastic and so easy to make, tastes wonderful, it doesn’t have all the **** [edited] that you find in the store bought ones, and gives you extra satisfaction when you see people enjoying and tell them that you made it yourself 😊

Thank you Marion!
