"Pssst! Do you want to know the secret ingredient to asian food? The unsung hero of all asian food? The one and only ingredient where if missing can ruin the taste of all dishes - It's the chilli sauce! Yes!

Be warned! It is addictive!

You can purchase dried Thai chilli from Asian grocery store. Please note: this is the hot variety.

Step 1: Put the amount of dried chilli that you required into a dry pan.

Step 2: Turn stove on to "low" heat setting, as you don't want to burn the chilli. The low setting allow the dried chilli to be roasted evenly.

Step 3: Use chopsticks or a wooden spoon to stir the chilli frequently to get an even roasting.

Step 4: After about 5 to 10 minutes, the colour should look like this. Turn off heat and continue stirring the chilli for about 1-2 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Step 5: Once the roasted chilli are cooled, put in a blender. Depending on how fine you want your chilli to be, I prefer mine to be fine (but not too powdery) so I set it to high.

Step 6: After about 30-45 seconds of blending, I got the texture like this.

Step 7: Store the grounded chilli in an airtight container.
I hope you enjoy!!!
