Simple Thai Style Sauce

Table of contents

A run down

Short on time well this simple Thai style sauce i make is as easy and as quick as it can be. We use it a Thai stir fry sauce but even a great base sauce for for many a oriental dish’s. And it really is so simple.

We use a hand blender which has a chopping bowl attachment on it (seen in pictures) but any normal household blender or food processor will be fine.

I always try to make the night before and leave it in the fridge allowing the aromatic flavours of some of these ingredients to infuse Overnight. Its ok to hold for 4 -5 days and we often would do 2 different dishes throughout the week with it.


Top Tip 1: Play around with the spice i use birds eye chilis which are hot and fragrant ( I love the spice) but a long red mild chili maybe be better to start with, if you not to familiar with spice.

Top Tip 2 : The recipe calls for the juice of 1 lime when extracting juice cut lime in half and gentle heat in a bowl in a microwave for 30 seconds. The heat will release the natural juices even more making it easier to extract

So here it is our simple Thai style sauce
