Cooking tips for how to make homemade Asian garlic chili sauce:

  • In this homemade chili garlic recipe, I use red Fresno chili peppers. If you use other kinds of chili pepper such as Thai chili, just put a tiny little bit at a time when you eat them because Thai chili is very spicy.
  • Also, you may need to adjust the amount of chili peppers depending on the sizes and different types of peppers.
  • If you have sensitive hands, please wear gloves before handling the chili peppers.
  • Turn on medium small fire and heat up oil. When the oil is hot, put the minced garlic into the hot oil slowly and let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add minced chili peppers and mix well with garlic. Let it simmer for 5-6 minutes.
  • After adding salt, sugar and vinegar. Let it simmer for another 5-6 minutes.
  • Sterilized glass containers before storing the sauce and cover with airtight seal. And, refrigerate the sauce.
  • Remember to use a clean and dry spoon every time when you scoop the chili sauce out.
