Hello everyone, my latest post and recipe is for Sweet Chilli Sauce. It is such a good basic ingredient to have in your kitchen. It can be used as a dip for your favourite Thai starters. I also use it as a stir fry sauce or add into other recipes.
I’ll continue to add in some more homemade basic recipes like this one. I have a really easy recipe for homemade tomato ketchup. Thinking about it, I also have a good one for chocolate and hazelnut spread. If there are any recipes you would like to see as I develop the site please let me know in the comments or on social media.
