Sweet and Sour Sauce – Easy Style
This is a quick and simple sweet and sour sauce I ripped off from a Mindful Chef recipe, having made my own tweaks. This is a sticky sauce, rather than the fluorescent pineapple-dotted sauce you find bits of chicken floating in in Chinese takeaway.
- 1 small red chilli
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp cornflour
- 2 tsp soy or tamiri sauce
- 2 tsp honey
- 2 tbsp tomato puree
In a bowl, mix together the cornflour with 2 tbsp cold water.
Add the tamari, tomato puree, honey and apple cider vinegar, mix well, and allow to stand.
Finely chop the garlic and red chilli.
Stir fry main component - meat or vegetable - in a wok, with the garlic and red chilli.
When almost cooked, add the sauce and simmer for 3 minutes.
