Yummy Chilli Dip




My mum brought two pieces of wu xiang tau kwa (五香豆干) for me yesterday when she came and so I had to figure out what to do with them for dinner today.

After pondering for awhile, I decided to fry the tau kwa and pair it with a chilli sauce for dipping.



The taste of this dip is rather complex as it is sweet yet tangy, unmistakably spicy yet not overwhelmingly so... :P

Do give it a try! :)



Yummy Chilli Dip (makes 1 dipping plate of sauce as shown below)



Ingredients:
  • 1/2 red chilli
  • 1 chilli padi
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 teaspoons rice vinegar (adjust to taste)
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • a pinch of salt
  • a bit of water (adjust accordingly, optional)
  • a bit of cornflour slurry

Method:
  1. Cut off the stalk of the chillies. Wash and dry them.
  2. Using the pestle and mortar, pound the chillies and garlic.
  3. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and add vinegar. Bring to a slight boil on low heat.
  4. Add the sugar, honey and just a pinch of salt.
  5. If mixture becomes too thick, add water (optional).
  6. Add cornflour slurry to slightly thicken the dip.
