Homemade Sriracha Recipe:

What you’ll need:
  • 25 grams small dried chillies.
  • 2 kg large fresh red chillies
  • 250 grams peeled garlic
  • 50 grams fresh bullet chillies
  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1.5L water
  • 500 grams white sugar
  • 200 ml rice vinegar
  • Sea salt, to taste
How to make Sriracha:
  1. Toast your Chillies
    • Toast the small dried chillies in a dry pan until fragrant.
  2. Cook the Chilli Sauce Base
    • In a large pot, combine your toasted chillies with the large fresh red chillies, peeled garlic, fresh bullet chillies, sea salt, vinegar, and water.
    • Bring the mixture to a boil until the chillies are soft, then remove the liquid. Keep 250ml of the cooking liquid to add to sauce at the final stage.
  3. Blend in a food processor until smooth
  4. Final cooking stage
    • Return the blended mixture to the pot.
    • Add the white sugar, rice vinegar, and reserved cooking liquid.
    • Season with additional sea salt, if desired.
    • Simmer the mixture until it reaches the desired thickness.
  5. Enjoy!
    Store the chilli sauce in airtight containers in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.
