  • Start by preparing the Thai red chilies. Remove the stems and roughly chop the chilies.
  • In a mortar and pestle or a food processor, add the chopped Thai red chilies, shallots, and garlic cloves. Pound or process until you have a coarse paste. Alternatively, you can finely chop the ingredients with a knife.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the chili paste and sauté for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar, and water to the saucepan. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Simmer the sauce for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are well blended and the sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and let the sauce cool to room temperature. As it cools, the flavors will continue to develop.
  • Once cooled, transfer the sauce to a serving dish or airtight container for later use. You can refrigerate it for up to a week.
  • Serve the Thai red chili dipping sauce as a condiment or dipping sauce alongside grilled or fried meats, spring rolls, dumplings, or other Thai dishes.
