After all our wandering around we were starving, so we ended up at a wonderful thai restaurant called Siam Seasons where we had THE most delicious meal. (No – I haven’t been incentivised to write that – but if you are ever in Ely it’s worth a visit). We enjoyed the food so much that I decided khổng lồ try lớn replicate some of the dishes myself at home the next day.

This first one that I am sharing is for thai Sweet Chilli Sauce, a classic dipping sauce found in many kitchen cupboards.

It has a distinctive sweet & hot chilli flavour, with a hint of garlic. Sweet chilli sauce can be used in any dish, in a marinade, or alone as a dipping sauce. It’s also also great for adding khổng lồ stir-fries và noodle dishes.

You could also try using it on a pizza instead of the traditional tomato. I’m thinking sweet chilli base, covered with sliced baby marrow, red bell peppers, & pineapple, topped with shredded chicken. Yummy!

I have used dried chilli flakes in the recipe & I find that one teaspoon is just about the right amount for my taste. It has a fair amount of heat & lots of flavour, but doesn’t burn too much.

You could substitute the dried chilli flakes with an equivalent amount of fresh finely chopped red chillis if you prefer.
