Directions

  1. In a sauce pan, heat oil on low heat. Fry the shallots until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add the whole chilis and stir frequent as the chilis will cook very fast. They will turn darker when they are done. Remove the chilis and set aside.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients. Let the sauce simmer for one or two minutes. Remove and serve in a small bowl. The sauce will get thicker as it cools.
  4. Sprinkle the fried shallot and chili on top. If you prefer it hotter, break up the chilis into small pieces and sprinkle on top the sauce.
