Chillie Sauce

There are a variety of excellent chillie sauces now readily available in most countries. If you would like to make your own, this recipe I learnt in Pakistan is really simple and excellent.


  • 2 tbs vinegar
  • 2 tbs coarsely ground chillie flakes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • half cup water


  1. Mix all above ingredients in a deep bowl, microwave to bring to the boil or add to a saucepan, bring to the boil and switch off.
  2. Cool and store in a bottle, can be stored for up to 4 days in the refrigerator or can be frozen for 3 months.
  3. A really good compliment to mild dishes.
