I used 2T of cornstarch instead of the 3T the recipe called for and it was too much. I think starting with 1T and working your way up is the way to go. I added more water and sugar and it turned out ok. I used it with egg rolls and it was pretty good.
I wish I'd taken notice of what Houseblend said - I thought it seemed like a lot of cornstarch, should have trusted my instinct! It was so thick that it would have been inedible. It was also far too vinegary. I added water and more sugar, and then cooked the taste of the cornstarch out until the sauce was clear - which took about 20 minutes. I've eventually ended up with an ok sauce, but i think i may work out my own recipe next time!
Dh and I love all things Thai and I was looking forward to making one of our favorite condiments at home, but unfortunately this sauce was unedible. Nothing like the little dish that we get with our appy's. First of all, the cornstarch mixture is way too plentiful for the small amount of liquid this makes, so you end up with a chalky tasting sauce. Second, this sauce tasted like a tart vinegar with hot pepper more than a nice balance of sweet, tangy and hot. I had to throw out the sauce as I just couldn't bring myself to serve it with dinner. Will not try again.
This recipe has some "kick" to it. I made this to go with our eggrolls last night and we loved it. Its a nice change from the usual sweet and sour. Thank you for sharing with us.
Sorry, but this was not, in our estimation , a good dipping sauce for sushi. Maybe for wing ??
I made this sauce last night to go with recipe 258664 "Tuna/Swordfish Steaks With Thai Dressing. That recipe called for 1/2 Cup of sweet chili sauce, and I read about this recipe for sweet chili sauce, so I gave it a try. THIS WAS OUTSTANDING! And easy to make! Loved this recipe, thanks!!!
I had never had this kind of sauce on sushi before, but it looked like it would be delicious, so I made us up a batch. We loved it! I only used 1 tablespoon of the sambal to suit our tastebuds, but other than that made it the same. I can only imagine how good this would be with Thai or Chinese appetizers. Need I say yum!
Really liked this sauce. I only made half a recipe but it is spicy and good. Served with egg rolls.
This sauce was so delicious on our sushi!
Thanks for all these great sushi making recipes Linda. This sweet hot sauce was perfect for our rolls to dip them in. Great taste that we loved!
