How to make chilli garlic sauce

  1. To prepare chilli garlic sauce recipe | Indian style chilli garlic sauce | homemade chilli garlic sauce | Chinese chilli garlic sauce | remove the stems of the Kashmiri red chillies and discard.
  2. Heat 1 cup of water in a saucepan and transfer to a deep bowl.
  3. Put the chillies in water and cover with a lid and keep aside for 30 minutes. We have made use of Kashmiri red chillies which provides a fiery red colour and mild heat but, you can use any other variety or a combination of 1-2 dried red chillies depending upon the spice level you can handle. Also, we have not removed the seeds of the chillies but if you want a more smooth chilli garlic sauce and less spicy, you can remove the seeds of the chillies before putting them in water. Fresh chillies like Thai bird-eye or cayennes, red jalapenos or Fresno peppers can also be used if available.
  4. After half an hour, drain the chillies using a strainer and discard the water. Soaking softens the red chillies and helps in blending easily.
  5. To make chilli garlic sauce, transfer the soaked and drained chillies to a mixer jar.
  6. Add chopped garlic. Smash the garlic with the back of a knife to quickly remove the skin or soak the garlic cloves in hot water for a while, as it makes them easier to peel. Also, oil your hands to avoid the garlicky aroma lingering on your fingertips.
  7. Add sugar. It counteracts vinegar and neutralizes the flavour of spicy chilli garlic sauce.
  8. Add white vinegar. It acts as a preservative and increases the shelf life of chilli garlic sauce. The acid helps cut through spiciness and contributes to the sourish taste of chilli garlic sauce. You can replace vinegar with lemon juice.
  9. Add salt.
  10. Blend till smooth into a fine paste without using any water.    
  11. Transfer chilli garlic sauce in a bowl.
  12. Add the sesame oil. It enhances the flavor and gives a beautiful aroma to our homemade chilli garlic sauce.

It was the simplicity of the steps involved that inspired me to prepare this absolutely delightful chilli garlic sauce. Came out so well and the visual appeal compared with the taste! Today I tried a chicken dish using this sauce and it’s turned out “heavenly” like my son Simon used to gush when he was a toddler. Thank you for the inspiration!
