  • Thai red chilies 15
  • Red jalapenos 4
  • Red snacking peppers 2 to 3
  • Rice vinegar 1/4 c
  • Dark soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • Garlic cloves 3 to 4 minced
  • Tomato sauce 2 tbsp
  • Brown sugar 2 tbsp
  • White sugar 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil 2 tbsp


  • Stem the chilies and peppers and slice them thinly. You may discard the seeds to reduce the heat. Make sure you wear a gloves while doing this.
  • Heat a pan with oil.
  • Add the minced garlic and fry till golden.
  • Now add the sliced peppers and chilies along with the tomato sauce and soy sauce and cook till they become soft.
  • To this add salt and sugar and mix well.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Once cool, add the rice vinegar to the pepper mixture and blend to a smooth paste in a blender.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly.
  • You may add more of vinegar or sugar if you find the sauce too hot.
  • I do not recommend adding water.
  • Remove and store in an airtight glass jar.
  • Use as required


f you want your sauce to be milder, then decrease the number of red chilies and increase the number of snacking peppers. Alternatively, you can also use more vinegar or sugar.
