Sweet Chili Sauce

The Thai sweet chili sauce is known as  Nam Chim Kai in Thailand . It is easily available in in bottles in most Asian food stores, but the recipe is so simple that you can easily make it at home. Much healthier version with no preservatives added. Thai sweet chili sauce makes a superb condiment for many Thai dishes and is excellent with chicken and fish as well as seafood. It is also wonderful as a marinade for grilling or as a dip for finger foods.

It goes amazingly well with Thai style corn fritters, as seen below.
