Recipe from Foods from Asia for Vietnam, This goes with Green Onion Rice
Make and share this Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Chili Sauce for Dipping) recipe from Food.com.
- 16 dried red chilies
- 16 garlic cloves
- 6 teaspoons sugar
- 1 cup fish sauce
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup lemon juice
- Mince chilies and garlic finely and place in a mortar. Mash with the heel of a cleaver or pestle. Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Add fish sauce, vinegar and lemon juice, stirring between each addition.
This had a beautiful balance of flavor and was a great dipping sauce for some mini spring rolls. Only change I made was to use fresh chilies rather than dried.
Great blend of flavors - this has everything - spicy, sweet, tangy, salty! Very flavorful and packs a punch. Thanks for sharing! ZWT9
