Sweet Chilli Sauce

Coming to day 2 under Sauces and Preserves,is sweet chilli sauce.Sweet Chilli sauce is a versatile dip or accompaniment for Asian starters and snacks.

I usually buy this sauce,but after seeing couple of videos in YouTube,I wanted to give a try,as the procedure is simple.The sauce came out very delicious with a perfect blend of sweetness and spiciness.

Here I have used the store bought chilli flakes to make the sauce.The regular red chillies can be pulsed in a blender and used. I made a small batch,as it was my first try.You can easily double or triple the quantity and can be stored in the refrigerator for a while.
