• Chilli sauce

    Serves: 500ml
    Cooking Time: 20 mins


    • 200ml olive oil
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 500g red chillies, chopped



    Heat 60ml (¼ cup) of the olive oil over a medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the chillies and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely before pouring the sauce into a sterilised jar. Top the chillies with the remaining oil (see Cook’s Tip below), seal the jar and store in a cool place.


    Make sure that the chillies are covered in oil to prevent fermentation.
