  • Begin by preparing the chili peppers. If using red chili peppers, remove the stems and seeds for a milder sauce. For a spicier sauce, leave some or all of the seeds in. If using green chili peppers, you can keep the stems and seeds intact. Chop the chili peppers into small pieces.
  • In a saucepan, combine the chopped chili peppers, sugar, rice vinegar, water, minced garlic, minced ginger, and soy sauce. Stir well to combine.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Taste the sauce and add salt according to your preference. If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can mix cornstarch with a small amount of water to create a slurry and add it to the sauce. Stir well and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the sweet chili sauce cool down. Once cooled, transfer the sauce to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Alternatively, if you prefer a chunkier sauce, you can skip this step.
  • Pour the sweet chili sauce into a sterilized jar or bottle and refrigerate. The sauce will continue to thicken slightly as it cools.
