READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Ridgely

This is a hot, sweet, sticky sauce that goes with Thai barbecued chicken as well as appetizers like spring rolls or fried won-tons. From the great Thai cookbook "True Thai". We absolutely love this!

This was an excellent dipping sauce - one of the better recipes I've found. I have tried it with both white vinegar and rice vinegar and have decided that I'll probably reduce the amount of vinegar next time. Thanks for sharing!
