This is a very hot green chilli sauce made with two types of green chilli - One for heat and one for sweetness and colour.

Hari says

There is nothing that will impress your friends more than a really hot homemade chilli sauce and this one is a really fresh, really tangy and really really hot!

Make sure you wear gloves whenever you are making anything like this and wash you hand throughly before touching anything. 

Top tip:

Coat your hands in a little oil and then wash them with soap to make sure you get rid of any unwanted chilli residue.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 100g large green chilli (mild)
  • 100g rocket green chilli (hot)
  • 175ml white vinegar 
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 5 cm root ginger
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 2 pinches asafoetida
  • 3 tbsp oil


  1. Put some kitchen gloves on and wash the green chillies. Remove the stems and cut it into large chunks.
  2. Wash the ginger and cut it into small bits.
  3. Heat oil in a pan then add the cumin seeds and asafoetida until fragrant.
  4. Add the green chillies and ginger to the pan stir in the salt and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour in 70ml water and put the lid on the pan - leave to cook for about 15 minutes on a gentle heat stirring occasionally.
  6. Once soft (after about 15 minutes) take the lid off and leave to reduce for a few minutes then remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  7. Pour into a blender and blitz. Pour in the vinegar a little at a time and blend.
  8. Once ready store the chilli sauce in a clean, dry jar. This will keep for 2-3 months.
