Homemade Chilli and Sultana Sauce !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

From Centuries to the present era most Indian women spend a lot of time in the kitchen and put so much effort in to their cooking. We don't believe in quick fixes, take aways or tasteless food! I guess we have to have harmony in our food where all the ingredients play their roles, in the right proportions !



Past few years I kept buying sweet chillli sauce from the shops, but I felt like we were just paying for weakly flavoured sugar syrup - no hints of fresh chilli there ! It was then I decided to make my own chilli sauce..



Chilli sauce is a regular in our house. It's a perfect condiment to so many different foods with all of us, such that if we ever do the unspeakable of running out of it, it's guaranteed to make someone upset. Chilli sauce just gives whatever your eating the extra kick that it needs to taste fantastic! So really, it's only natural that I give the recipe a go myself!



I believe that with chilli sauce, you need the correct balance of all of the ingredients: too much sugar, and it's all syrupy;  too much chilli, and suddenly it becomes overpowering. But get the ingredient proportions correct, then you're going to have a stronger and more satisfying taste. The sultanas are perfect because they provide a natural sweetness to the sauce which could only have been achieved by adding extra sugar (thus making it more syrupy).. it's a WIN-WIN really!



You will need :-
  • 100 g fresh red chillies ( stems removed )
  • 150 g sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 50 g sultanas
  • 2-3 cloves garlic peeled
  • Salt to taste


Method :-
Place chillies, sultanas, garlic and white vinegar in a food processor and processes until chillies are finely chopped.
Place chilli mixture, sugar and salt in a stainless steel saucepan over a low heat.
Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Bring it to the boil and allow the mixture to simmer gently until the chillies and sultanas are soft about 12-15 minutes.
Let the sauce gets cool and puree until smooth.
Pour into a sterilised bottle and seal.
