Chilli and garlic are all-time favourite ingredients when it comes to the preparation of Chinese accompaniments, because their pungent notes add an adventurous dimension to any dish.

Here we show you how to make a fiery Chilli Garlic Sauce! To get this sauce right, make sure the chillies soak well in hot water, otherwise you won’t be able to grind them smoothly.

A dash of vinegar and some sugar give this spicy sauce shades of tartness and a complementary sweetness too, making it an all-rounder!
