  • 1 cup Thai chilis
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 head of garlic (1.5 oz)
  • 1 1/4 cup water


  1. Chop the peppers into large pieces. No need to chop them finely as they will be cooked and turned to paste in a food processor. Remove the seeds if you prefer your sauce to be less spicy.
  2. Add the chilis, garlic, and water to a small saucepan, bring it to a gentle boil, then simmer for about 15 minutes. The water will reduce to about 1/4-1/3 cup less.
  3. Let it cool slightly, then add the mixture to a medium food processor. Blitz until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Stop once or twice to scrape the sides with a rubber spatula.
  4. Strain the pulp into a medium bowl over a fine mesh strainer. Use the same rubber spatula to press down on the liquid as much as possible.
  5. Place the strained liquid back into the saucepan. Add sugar, salt, and vinegar, stir, and let it thicken slightly on medium-low heat f


  • Always use kitchen gloves when dealing with hot chili peppers. Buy these online here.
  • Remove the seeds to reduce the spice level. Do this before cooking chilis; it's easier than dealing with mushy peppers. Also, boiling the seeds in water will make the liquid hotter.
  • Adjust the colors of your Thai spicy hot sauce by using different colors of bell peppers, red or orange peppers. Make it fun and different each time.
