exactly what i was hoping for when i saw this recipe! i think it's a great food to have on hand to cut the extreme spice of the rest of the thai meal *grin*. can't wait to make it again.
I just make it today. Since I'm pregnant, therefore, sweet, hot and sour is the taste that I crave for. I loved it and I even add some fish sauce into it.
I recently had a dim sum night, and made up three different dipping sauces for the dumplings (say that three times fast!). This was my personal favourite, the cool, crisp cucumbers with the fiery heat of the chili paste- which I added beyond the recommended amount. Even my husband, who was watching very suspiciously as I added 'vegetables' to the sauce was pleasantly surprised, and went back for seconds, and even thirds. A great sauce, that I can see using over and again- thanks.
