Sweet Chilli Sauce


10 cloves of garlic, peeled
4 large red chillis, stems off
3 thumb sized pieces of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
1 thumb sized piece of galangal, peeled and roughly chopped
8 lime leaves
3 lemon grass stems, remove the 2 outside leaves then finely slice the inside
1 bunch of coriander
300g caster sugar
100ml cider vinegar
50ml thai fish sauce


  1. Put the first 7 ingredients into a food processor and puree to a coarse paste.
  2. Put the sugar in a saucepan with 4 tablespoons of water and place over a moderate heat and stir well until the sugar is dissolved. When it has, remove the spoon and turn the heat up to full. Boil for about 5-8 minutes and do not stir until it has turned a dark caramel colour.
  3. Stir in the paste and bring the sauce back to the boil, then add the last 3 ingredients.
  4. Again bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute. Leave it to cool before eating.
