This sauce was created because I was clearing out the fridge, before going on a holiday! There was a packet of green chillies, some garlic, ginger and a few roots of fresh turmeric in my vegetable tray. I decided to put them all together in a blender and came up the this tasty, hot sauce! Makes one small jar.
15-20 green chillies, de-stalked
6-7 cloves garlic, peeled
2-3 inch piece of ginger root, roughly chopped
2 inch piece fresh turmeric root, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 cup malt or other type of vinegar
2 tsp. rock salt or black salt (kala namak), adjust to taste
Place everything in a blender and purée. Transfer to a jar and keep in the fridge.
You can make it in bulk and freeze in small jars.
I always save my empty jam, spice, sauce jars. I wash them in dishwasher and they are always there for use, sooner or later. I also ask friends with children to collect a few baby food jars, very handy for freezing chutneys, storing spices, jams etc.
