Sweet Chilli Paste Recipe

Sweet Chilli Paste Recipe

Use this in our Thai Chilli Chicken recipe. It is very versatile, however, and will add a zing to any Southeast Asian recipe. It is delicious as a dip as it has a slightly chewy, caramel texture, with a lingering spicy flavour. Any dried chillies will work; it depends on your heat tolerance!

  • 80ml groundnut/vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion or 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 40g dried crushed chillies (skin and seeds)
  • 1 heaped tsp brown/palm sugar
  • pinch of salt
  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan, and cook the onion until translucent
  2. Add the garlic and cook for a few minutes
  3. Add the chilli, stir and add the sugar and salt
  4. It is ready when the sugar has dissolved and the paste has thickened, which only takes a couple of minutes
  5. Leave to cool, then put in a jar in the fridge, where it will keep for several weeks
