Homemade Hainanese Chilli Sauce


I had a good harvest this year for red chillies grown on my balcony. So happy that I could make a bottle of homemade chilli sauce from them. I made the Hainanese Chilli Sauce used as dip for their Hainanese Chicken Rice. I used the same ingredients that they used to make the dip. It is very easy to whip, just blitz the red chillies, ginger, garlic, salt and sugar , two tbsp of water or more depending how much chillies is being used and last add in Calamansi juice or distilled vinegar. Give the blended ingredients a quick boil . Cool it down completely before bottling. It keeps the lifespan longer in the fridge. Bottle or jar must be sterilised in hot bottle water.
