Hot and Sweet Dip

Ready in minutes, the Hot and Sweet Dip is made with chilli flakes and vinegar sweetened with sugar. A pinch of salt helps to highlight the other flavours, and must be added without fail.

Remember to allow this dip to soak for a few hours before serving so that the sauce imbibes the spiciness of the chill flakes well before serving. Otherwise you will end up with a predominantly sweet dip, which does not deliver the required effect.

Hot and Sweet Dip can be best enjoyed with Thai Sweet Corn Cutlets , Thai Green Stir-fry Rice , Thai Pineapple Rice and Pad Thai Noodles
