Although soy sauce and tamari [tuh-MAHR-ee] are both made from fermented soybeans, Japanese tamari is thicker, darker, and richer than its counterpart. Think of it as the kinder, gentler (and less salty) soy sauce. It has a more complex, smooth flavor compared to the sometimes harsh, overwhelming bite of a salty soy sauce.-21 Aug 2012

Recipe for thai style homemade chilli garlic sauce. Easy to make hot chilli sauce recipe that comes handy while making asian recipes. Recipe with step by step pictures.


  • 100 grams ripe red chillies
  • 200 grams garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar (or) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil (plain – not toasted)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch / flour
  • 2 tablespoon water


  1. Peel the garlic, wash and remove the stems from the chillies. Set aside.
  2. Take a mixie / food processor and grind the chillies and garlic to a coarse paste. Do not add any water while grinding.
  3. We need a coarse paste. Once the mixture is coarse, stop grinding and set aside.
  4. Take a pressure cooker and add in the coarse ground paste and the sugar. Add more sugar if you like your sauce on the sweeter side. Adjust the sugar according to your taste. Add in the water. Add in the rice vinegar (or) apple cider vinegar. Use whatever vinegar you have at home. It works just fine. I have used apple cider vinegar for making this recipe. Add in the sesame oil. This is plain un toasted sesame oil. Finally add in the salt.
  5. Mix everything well and pressure cook the sauce for 10 minutes. Ignore the number of whistles and cook the sauce on a medium flame. After 10 minutes, remove the sauce from heat and wait for the pressure to settle naturally.
  6. In the meantime, make a corn starch slurry by mixing the corn starch and water. Set aside.
  7. Open the cooker and add in the corn starch slurry to the sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes till the sauce thickens up. The sauce will further thicken up as it cools. Its ok if the sauce looks a wee bit watery.
  8. Remove from heat and set aside to completely cool. Homemade chilli garlic is ready.
  9. Bottle the homemade chilli garlic sauce (use glass or ceramic to store the sauce) and refrigerate. The sauce will be good refrigerated for up to a couple of months.

Flowering sprout chips with nori and sesame salt

Flowering sprouts, or kalettes, are a cross between kale and brussels sprouts. They’re a relatively new ingredient to our supermarket shelves, and can be fried, steamed, boiled or roasted. If you can’t find them, just use brussels. The nori salt here makes double the amount needed, but it’s so good, I’d recommend making even more. It’s a wonderful way to season food, from boiled eggs to roast chicken and everything in between, and keeps very well.

Prep 5 min
Cook 40 min
Serves 4

1 10cm x 10cm sheet nori seaweed
20g sunflower seeds
20g pumpkin seeds
10g white sesame seeds
10g black sesame seeds
1 tsp chilli flakes
Flaky sea salt
340g flowering sprouts (aka kalettes)
2 tbsp olive oil
100g mayonnaise, homemade or shop-bought, to serve

Heat the oven to 160C/320F/gas 2½.

Put a medium-sized frying pan on a medium heat, add the nori and dry-fry for six to seven minutes, turning once halfway, until it starts to brown and break apart easily. Break into very small pieces, either in a spice grinder or by hand (in which case the pieces will be slightly bigger) and put in a medium-sized bowl.

Return the pan to a medium heat, add the sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and toast for three to four minutes, until they have turned golden brown and the pumpkin seeds have popped. Tip them out on to a board, chop into rough 2-3mm pieces and add to the nori bowl.

Put all the sesame seeds in the pan and toast for two minutes until the white sesame turn golden brown. Add to the nori bowl, then stir in the chilli and a teaspoon and a half of salt.

Put the kalettes in a large bowl (cut any large ones in half lengthways, so they are all roughly the same size). Add the olive oil and a half-teaspoon of salt, and toss to coat evenly. Transfer the sprouts to a large oven tray lined with baking paper, spacing them well apart, and roast for 18-20 minutes, turning them once halfway through, until crisp and starting to brown.

Remove and serve warm with a bowl each of mayonnaise and nori salt alongside, for dipping.

Chelsie recommends using small or medium-sized seeds. Some larger seeds may be too tough to eat, although generally all seeds are suitable for consumption, so make a judgement call based on the seeds you’re faced with. Seeds straight from the pumpkin are usually white and they look different to the dark green seeds you see in packets. This is because the dark seeds are the inner kernel, and they’re so tricky to extract that we advise against it.

How To Make Spicy Marinated Beans

First off, prepare your beans by soaking them overnight and cooking them the next day. If you don&rsquot have beans to cook, simply use tinned beans for this recipe. Drain the beans and set aside while you prepare the marinade.

This spicy and tangy marinade for beans comes together beautifully and promises delicious flavour!

For the marinade: Simply combine good quality olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and red wine vinegar. Next add your flavourings such as garlic and chilli. I also added some curry powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Don&rsquot forget to add finely chopped herbs like sage, parsley and dill for freshness. Lastly for texture, I added finely chopped red onion and celery.

Finally, make sure to season with loads of sea salt and black pepper.

Once you have mixed your beans with the marinade, transfer it to a glass jar and keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.

Method (tick as you go)

Cook the Pumpkin & Spinach Burgers according to instructions on the packet.

To make the dipping sauce, mix the juice with the soy, fish sauce, chilli, garlic and sesame seeds. Shred a handful of the coriander and add that as well.

Meanwhile, shred the carrot, red cabbage, and apple. Shred the rest of the coriander and toss everything together. Spoon a little of the salad into each lettuce leaf using it like a cup.

Cut the Pumpkin & Spinach Burgers into small pieces and add a couple to each lettuce cup.


Start off by making the dough. Place the flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl (or bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attachment) and mix together with a wooden spoon to combine.

Add the lukewarm water and bring together, then tip out onto a clean surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic (or use a dough hook on a medium speed for around 5 minutes). Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with oiled cling film or a damp, clean tea towel. Leave to prove for 1-1.5 hours or until at least doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 190c. While the dough is proving prepare the toppings. Toss the pumpkin in the nutmeg, fennel seeds, a little oil and some oil. Spread out onto a baking tray in an even layer and roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender, then set aside.

Meanwhile, heat some oil in a frying pan and add the onion. Cook until very soft, then add the crumbled up sausage, stirring occasionally until it&rsquos cooked through. Add the chilli, garlic and half the chopped sage and season well. Cook for a further couple of minutes then set aside

Once the dough is ready, knock back by punching down the centre. Split the dough into two and shape into balls. Cover with a damp tea towel

Heat your grill to 200c or higher. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium/high heat. Take your first ball of dough and, working quickly, stretch to the size of the pan, leaving the edges a little thicker than the centre. Place into the hot pan, stretching a little more and re-adjusting if necessary

Add half of the toppings, starting with the torn mozzarella, followed by the onion mix, the pumpkin pieces

Cook in the pan until the base is golden brown and crisp (around 3-4 minutes) then drizzle over a little more oil and transfer to the grill and continue to cook for around 5 minutes or until the dough is golden and cooked through and the toppings are nicely caramelised

To finish, garnish with the remaining sage. Repeat the process with the remaining dough and toppings.
