  • 1 - 1 ½ cup birds’s eye chili or Jalapeno or mix of chilis
  • 1 head garlic peeled
  • ½ tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt adjust as needed
  • cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water add more if needed


  • Wash peppers and cut out the green stems.
  • Put the peppers, garlic, salt, sugar, and vinegar in a blender and blend on medium speed until finely chopped. If too dry, add 1-2 tablespoon of water to make it easier to blend.
  • Transfer the mixture in a small pot or saucepan. Heat the pot over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in 1 tbsp of water and add this to the mixture once it starts to simmer. Cook until it thickens and then turn off the heat and let it cool down completely.
  • It is ready to be served or it can be stored in a jar in the fridge for up to 3 months.
