Serves : 9
  • Dry Red Chilli destalked and desseded -50 gm

  • Garlic cloves(finely chopped)-18-20

  • Ginger(finely chopped)-1 inch

  • Tomato Chilli Sauce-2 tsp

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

  • 2 tbsp white vinegar

  • 6-7 tbsp oil

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sugar - adjust


  • Soak red chillies in luke warm water for 30 minutes. Drain water and grind red chillies to fine paste
  • Heat a Non stick pan, Heat oil. Add ginger garlic and saute until raw aroma goes away. Oil helps in storing for longer duration
  • Add red chilli paste and saute until the raw taste goes away. Chinese dishes are always cooked on high flame.
  • This will be like a paste. Add water as required as we need to make sauce. Mix everything well. Add vinegar, salt, sugar and sauces. Mix well. This will add color , reduce pungent taste, add sour and tangy taste and make it last longer
  • Cover and cook on low- medium flame for 15 minutes, keep stirring in between. The oil will start leaving the sides. Cook for another 3-4 minutes without lid. Switch off .Allow it to cool. Bottle and store in cool dry place.
  • My Tip: You can add small amount of finely chopped celery too while cooking for additional taste
