An intense sauce of garlic and green chillies, with a dash of onions and spring onion whites for crunch and tomato ketchup for tang, the Red Garlic Sauce gets its volume from vegetable stock thickened with cornflour. This Chinese sauce is a great accompaniment for Oriental starters, but combines superbly with a bowlful of rice or noodles too.
