Title: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Thermoconvert on November 23, 2009, 02:30:09 am
This is one of the easiest recipes that I have made in the Thermomix.  I originally used to make it on the stovetop and have converted the recipe.

SWEET CHILLI SAUCE

Ingredients:
125g whole red fresh chillies (stalks removed)
250g sultanas
4 teaspoons of fresh ginger (cut in small chunks)
8 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons salt
1 cups white vinegar (360g)
3 cups of raw sugar (610g)
1 cup of water (250g)

Method
Place all ingredients into TM bowl and process on speed 8 for 20 seconds.  Cook for 10 minutes on Varoma on speed 2.  Scrape sides and cook for a further 40 minutes on 100c on speed 3.

Pour into sterilized bottles and seal.

General Tips
You can thicken this sauce by increasing the cooking time or make it 'chunkier' looking by decreasing the initial processing time.

I have bottled it and it has always lasted 6 months, but I am sure it would last longer (if i could keep my husband away from it:)

My SIL loves this stuff so I am going to make up a batch for him (and keep a little bit for myself).  Which chillies do you use, the small hot ones or the longer ones? He likes hot but I'm not that adventurous.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Thermoconvert on November 23, 2009, 02:44:27 am
I use the longer chunkier ones.  They are not super hot.  You could always modify the amount of chilli to required taste.  The original recipe given to me had 250g of seeded chilli.  I am super lazy and find it easier to process whole, halve the chilli and waste less:)

Thanks TC - this is great.  Did you know that there are more bottles of sweet chilli sauce sold in the world than bottles of soy sauce?  Somebody who should know told me last week.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: judydawn on November 23, 2009, 02:57:04 am
Just re-read this recipe TC and again, with the vinegar - anything specific or just plain white vinegar.  Funny, SIL hates sultanas but after the first step, he won't even know they are in there  :D :D :D :D
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Thermoconvert on November 23, 2009, 03:16:43 am
I have used white and brown and both have worked out fine.  I buy the basic homebrand vinegar and according to the ingredients the only difference between the two is some colouring added.  I now only buy white.

TC when I first read this I thought 'oh, I'll have to leave the sultanas out'. Then I read on and of course I won't. My family are a bit funny with sultanas, only have them in seet things.
Thanks for all these recipes as they are things most of us use a lot.

I've clipped this recipe to Evernote to give it a try, rather than Cyndi O'Meara's recipe next time, and see which we prefer.  Thanks.

I have just made this recipe (yummo) and was wondering if it has to be kept in the fridge TC.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Thermoconvert on November 25, 2009, 11:15:30 pm
I have some opened chilli sauce in the fridge and the sealed stuff in the cupboard.  I haven't notice any spoiling.

I made this for Christmas hampers and forgot to review.

It is sooooo delicious, it got the biggest rave out of everything I made. We love it here. :D

I'm so glad you enjoyed it.  It is so easy, I have made it for a fete stall and everyone thought I was fabulous...I had to tell them my little secret of owning a Thermomix.

You have made it on the stovetop (before Thermie), but the colour it keeps in the Thermomix is much brighter.

hello
I'd like to make this recipe but I always have problems with cups!
What is the measure of yours!
And by the way - do I not take of the seeds of the Peppers???
thanks

isi, our cup measures 250ml and our tablespoons equal 20ml (4 tsp)   :)

I will do this Tomorrow!
Sounds Veeeery Good
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: judydawn on January 15, 2010, 12:12:04 am
I just weighed the sugar for you isi - 1 cup = 220g. The 4 teaspoons of fresh ginger weighed 15g. Use the long red chillies and leave the seeds in too.  If you used the small, hot ones that may be a different story.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Thermoconvert on January 19, 2010, 05:10:02 am
I use the long red chillies and leave the seeds in.  If you want to take the seeds out you will have to double the amount of chillies to create the same amount of 'heat' (as per original recipe given to me).

It is a lot more economical to just include the seeds.

I made this yesterday - taste is yummo! I might put a little less water just so it is a bit thicker. I have had a huge supply of these chillies from my mum and dad's and everyone too scared to use them. The Habanero - is in the world's top Hottest chillies! You can feel the heat on your hands as your cutting them (and a couple hours after)

This sounds great, thanks TC!

No, I used half red chillies with seeds and half habenero without seeds. I didn't think those yellow chillies would have that nice colour by themselves.
On another chilli story: My DS 11 had the dehydrator out with a bag full of chillies drying out and then put in TMX and whizzed it up into chilli powder today. The dust nearly killed us!!  :o

Good point Nay nay - I tend to put a clean tissue over the base of the MC with things like sugar and spices to stop them drifting out.

Reheated the sauce and tipped over a tub,(looks better than block) of philly cheese.   Served as dip.   Very nice.

This is a great recipe - thanks so much!  I made it today for the first time and my DH and I love it.  This batch is probably too hot for my little tots so I will probably leave some of the seeds out next time.  :)

I made 2 jars out of this recipe Meagan - one for us and one for son-in-law. So I would say approximately 3-4 cups maybe?

Wow, I made this yesterday, and it just about blew my socks off. Lovely taste, but with all the seeds in and home-grown chillies bit too hot for me. Was fine though, cos I found appreciative people who love it to share my bottles of sauce. S
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Nay-nay on May 19, 2010, 03:52:29 am
I always add a teaspoon of this to my soups and stews etc - just my bowl as no one in the house likes "hot" but me. I think it makes a chicken noodle or similar soup.  ;)

sourpuss, somewhere on this forum there is a discussion about sweet chilli sauce being too hot and Thermomixer (I am sure it was) had the great idea of making another batch or 1/2 batch with red capsicums and combining the two. I have done that and it works a treat. I just can't find the thread - too sick and tired  :'( :'( :'(

Sorry to hear that you are ill faffa_70.  Need some serious rest.

Yes, good idea(might be mine) to mix with cooked peppers and maybe some extra sugar to reduce the heat.

hey i tried the sauce, but i made one small change: i put in less sugar because my man is pre diabetic.. and it has a nice heat to it..  but not over hot .. must be the poor chilii we have over here....   
and i think i may nextime blitz the mixture longer then 20 seconds;  maybe like 45 instead of 200.. the sauce is a bit lumpy....  but the taste is wonderful . let the spring rolls come !!!!! damn ....  i have to make those myself if i want any   ...   cant have the processed stuff...  lol

I made this on the weekend.  The flavour is perfect however it's so thick I can't get it out of the bottle!  I followed the receipe exactly.  Any tips for making thinner (now it's bottled).   My knife only reaches so far, I was thinking maybe to add vinegar and heating the bottle to mix it up a little?

Any for next time I will store it in wide jars not old sweet chilli sauce bottles, or maybe it requires less time/more liquid?
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: faffa_70 on August 09, 2011, 05:15:25 am
hmm I don't have that problem and I store it in the old sweet chilli bottles and keep it in the fridge. Make this often too. Wonder what will have caused that (I have no idea!!) hopefully someone with knowledge will be able to help.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: achookwoman on August 09, 2011, 07:19:39 am
Try putting the whole bottle in a container of very hot water and give it a good shake after about 20 mins.  could also heat it in the Microwave.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: judydawn on August 09, 2011, 09:25:38 am
Mine is in the fridge and pourable.  Did you think it wasn't thick enough and cook it longer than the recipe said Vivaroo? It does tend to thicken more once cold but it was quite runny when I filled my glass bottles.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce

Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Vivaroo on August 09, 2011, 11:35:22 am
  I followed the receipe exactly.

arghhh... just reread what I scribbled down in my notebook against original recipe and I left off 1 crucial instruction - turn it down to 1000C for 40 minutes.  So glad to know it should be pourable, I'll definitely be making again, and REALLY follow the instructions next time. 

To convert original recipe to delicious Sweet Chilli Jam thick enough to hold down an elephant just Varoma for the whole stated time  :-[

Post by: judydawn on August 09, 2011, 12:40:23 pm
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  At least you worked out where you went wrong Vivaroo.  Perhaps you could make another batch, not cook it as long and mix the 2 together.

I made this this afternoon and although still hot it is just lovely! For me it made one dolmio size jar plus two taco salsa sized jars full.

I used chillies with seeds and all.

Actually never mind - I just made the full batch. And YUMMO is the response. We had it tonight with some minced chicken rissoles. This sauce is delicious. It will make a wonderful housewarming gift for our friends tomorrow night.

has anyone tried both, does anyone have a preference?
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce

This  is one of our all time fav recipes .  I even used it as a base on pizzas  the other night.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: KarenH on October 11, 2012, 12:15:02 am
Hi curly66,
I have made both recipes, and I prefer this one.  I have also tried making it with rapadura once.  It makes the sauce very dark brown, almost muddy in appearance, but if you dont mind the colour, it still tastes great.  Having said that, rapadura is quite expensive, and this recipe calls for a lot of sugar, so I just use raw sugar now.

Looking to make the Thai Chicken Sausage rolls which uses sweet chili sauce, and thought there must be a TMX recipe :)

Sounds like its well liked, and despite my dislike of sultanas I'll give it a go.

[remove stupid question that I missed the answer to in the first post]
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce

Let's know how you like it, Rob. Which recipe do you use for your Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls?
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: tarasis on October 11, 2012, 01:13:17 pm
Will do, just bought the ingredients I need. Was going to make these sausage rolls (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=10954.msg184776#msg184776)
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: tarasis on October 11, 2012, 07:26:08 pm
So just made this (with Dark Brown soft cane sugar rather than raw sugar as I can't get a hold of that, I debated some light brown cane sugar).

I'd blend it a bit more next time, still a couple lumps of sultana about (noticed when pouring out), the taste on its own isnt to bad but it's a smidge too far into the hot kick and not enough sweetness. I added a bit to some left over mince tart from the kids tea and it added a pleasant edge. So I'm a little undecided at the moment.

I try dunking a sausage roll in it later when I've made them :)
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: fundj&e on October 11, 2012, 07:42:39 pm
i am going to make this 2 but not a fan of the sultana, Rob do u think blitzing  them 1st would be a better way to go, so i would not see them  ;D
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: tarasis on October 11, 2012, 08:26:02 pm
As I say there were only the part of a couple visible, otherwise they are all gone (I don't like seeing them either normally). I would just blend for a tiny bit longer next time (or scrape down in the middle). Good luck :)

My wonder is whether using the lighter color brown sugar would have made it a bit sweeter (I am a sugar novice).
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce

Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: KarenH on October 11, 2012, 11:19:13 pm
Rob, if I want to make this a bit less hot (ie for the kids) I de-seed the chillies beforehand.  Makes a big difference to the hotness.

Uni, I think dates would work fine.  Good thought!
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: tarasis on October 11, 2012, 11:32:09 pm
Thanks Karen, I will try that next time. Though even giving some of it away that might be a little while (it does make a lot) ...

(Who am I kidding, it will probably be sooner than later)

I made this today and it is really lovely but quite grainy!!
also curious, why does it have sultanas in it??
I wasn't expecting it to look like the bought stuff because it's made from scratch AND I used rapadura 1/2 and 1/2 with raw..
I processed it for longer than required and took half of the chilli seeds out and half left in, not hot enough for me, barely a bite but still nice

I saw a bottle of Strawberry Sweet Chilli Sauce on a friend's bench recently. It tasted divine. I'm thinking next time I make some, I'm going to throw in some strawberries.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: fundj&e on October 29, 2012, 01:20:33 am
made some without the fresh chillis i add 3 teaspoons of chilii powder  and 2 teaspoons of paprika, also i only hade 300g of raw sugar made the rest up with white sugar

i will make it like this the next time i make, the heat of the chilli powder is just right for me, and i am happier with the colour this time

Post by: phatassphairy on October 29, 2012, 07:00:02 am
oh ps ... i tweaked mine too

left out ginger cause i am allergic to it .... used 175g of sweet chilies and i used 200grams of prunes (cause i had no sultanas)

better share that  :-)) whhoooops

Post by: Rogizoja on October 29, 2012, 12:08:06 pm

Edit: Ignore this question - I've just reread the recipe on page 1 and Thermoconvert says it will last for 6mths at least.

Vieve,  this would go nice along with that fantastic looking Goats cheese.

Good idea AB.  I might make up a batch of this tomorrow and see how well they go together.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Yay, I finally got around to making the Sweet Chilli Sauce today.  Tastes sensational, although I only got to try a little.

I'm including a few bottles in christmas hampers.

I made an adapted version of the sweet chili sauce, and made belgizn home made chocolate pralines filled with the chili sauce.. Those, my friends , came out amazing, the sweet and sour against the bitter chocolate

For the sweet chili sauce, i refer to the recipe on the forum

The chocolate i late as follows

 250 grams cane sugar and one vanilla pod 1 minute speed 10, remove

500 gr cocoa butter pellets - 30 minutes (untill melted completely, check and use the spatula to bring it all together) 37 degreed, speed 2

Add sugar, put on 50 degrees for 10 minutes speed 2 then 20 minutes at 37 degrees speed 2

Add 400 grams of pure cocoa powder (not chocolate milk powder) and again 10 minutes, 50 degrees speed 2 then 20 minutes at 37 speed 3


Fill the chilled praline molds with the chocolate and let set for a few minutes.. Remove the excess chocolate and fill wht the sweet chili..  Then add another layer of chocolate to seal the pralines and store in the fridge.. 

They wil come out like this

it was fine at 9 minutes and I knew i had to head to the kitchen soon so I took off in there to scrape and set for the next 40 minutes and had a pool of sauce underneath and thermie was 'covered' in it......  I've wiped and wiped and wiped and done another batch of worcestershire since and it's still sticky...

Mine has been open for over a year now, because i have about 30 different sauces homemade, i do not use them every day.. The sweet chili tastes just as great as day one
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: tarasis on February 11, 2013, 08:39:12 pm
I'm always weary of making the homemade sauces as I'm the only one that will eat them (partly also because I'm not sure how long they'll last). This however I tried and was so yummy I went through it quickly. I also made it for a friend who wants me to make it again.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Alexis on February 11, 2013, 11:31:53 pm
I've got a big bag of chillies, so will be making this today. My last batch of "chilli sauce" is just about gone - it was actually chilli jam, but it is really runny.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: RosieB on February 14, 2013, 09:53:31 am
This makes a very very nice dipping sauce if you substitute chopped dried apricots for the sultanas.
And it is divine poured over cream cheese as a dip. 
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Jamberie on February 18, 2013, 10:47:28 am
Great idea RosieB.

I made this today using small, thin red chillis. It's hot and it's yum! The sultanas really add something to it, although I wouldn't know they were there if I hadn't put them in myself iykwim!
I only had 190g chilli and as some people mentioned the end product being quite runny I only added half a cup of water (instead of a whole cup). Worked well :) The colour is really quite dark and I'm pleased someone posted a photo earlier so that I knew what to expect :)

Next time we get a glut of chillis I'll certainly be making it again!
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Bootobethin on February 20, 2013, 12:12:30 am
I made this sauce a few days ago.
I followed the recipe exactly and it is a stunning sauce.
I used small chillies so it is very hot but very tasty.
I am about to make it again with larger and milder chillies so it is not so hot.
I will also try the idea of dried apricots as a variation.
We use a lot of chilli sauce so don't think I will be buying it any more.
Thank you very much for a fantastic and easy recipe.

I just made this beautiful sauce . I wasn't too sure as to whether to leave the MC on or off, so left it on and it was the perfect consistency . Just a delicious sauce.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Amy :-) on March 14, 2013, 09:45:12 am
I made a batch of this today to use up a heap of chillis! I had to make a few adaptions so I hope it tastes okay :-)) ;D

Mine is very runny, does it thicken a bit in the fridge?
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce
Post by: Greyhoundmum on March 15, 2013, 11:57:45 am
Hi Amy mine hasn't thickened but it is such a perfect taste. My DH also thinks that the taste gets better with  age about a week or so after I have made it.

I have made this again twice.
This time I used large red chillies from the Vietnamese Supermarket ($3 for 200grams).
It is perfect with a good heat and sweetness and so easy to make.
Thanks again for the recipe it is now a pantry staple in our house.

Made this sauce today and it turned out great.  I did take out some of the seeds as DH does not like things too hot, but next time will leave them in.  The sauce was a nice consistency and has a lovely taste.  I did leave the MC off.  Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

I can't stop eating this ;D
I used brown vinegar, and had to cook it for 50min at 100c, as it was not thick enough after 40 min. I took the MC off for the last 20 minutes, and it made 5 small bottles. I made it in my Thermochef, without any adjustments to the speeds.
I will be making this again.
One bottle is missing from the photo as I have given it away, and I have eaten some sauce from the bottle at the back....

Thank you for bumping this CP :-* It's a dazzler and I'm not even that fond of chilli  ;D
I made a half quantity with a mix of fresh chilli and chilli flakes (2 chillies and 4 t chilli flakes from memory). It set beautifully and tastes amazing. A small jar has already disappeared amidst exclamations of how wonderful it tastes.
Title: Re: Sweet Chilli Sauce

I make this recipe year round.

I usually use the larger milder chillis if I can.

I'm sure she will appreciate it Denise.  I gave some of the products from my plum cooking to friends who visited Geoff yesterday, they were going home to use both that night!  It's nice to share our spoils, then we can make more pantry/fridge items a lot sooner.  I really enjoy making these types of things in the Thermomix, they'd never get made if it wasn't for him  ;D
