Quick and Easy Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
Sweet Thai Chili Sauce is so good. Its one of those things that seems vegan and often is but sometimes has fish sauce hidding in it. But no worries, it is easy to make and the ingredients are so cheap it's hard to justify buying it. Now be warned, this is a spicy sauce. It's not the spiciest but it is spicy.
What you need:
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of rice vinegar
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper/ red chili flakes
1 tbsp corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp water
What to do:
Put first 5 ingredients in a small pot over high heat. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer immediately after reaching boil to avoid it boiling over.
Stir in the cornstarch water mixture and stir until the sauce thickens.
Remove from heat and serve in small ramekins.
Enjoy as a sauce or a dip. Can be saved in the fridge but the consistency will change. The consistency can be quickly restored by microwaving for about 10-15 seconds.
