Chicken Rice Chilli Sauce
This is the recipe for the garlic chilli sauce that accompanies Hainanese chicken rice. It’s hot, tangy and garlicky. To me, a plate of Hainanese chicken rice is simply incomplete without this chilli sauce as well as ginger sauce, the other important condiment.

Apart from Hainanese chicken rice, this chilli sauce goes well with many dishes and steamed chicken in general.
A food processor (pic above) greatly speeds up the process of making this recipe. If you don’t have one, you can use a traditional mortar and pestle to pound the dry ingredients first. The chilli sauce keeps in the fridge for about a week.
Woooahhhh, wonderful condiment esp for chicken rice. :) Last year, I did not cook chicken rice at home at all, so I did not even make this sauce for keeps. :(
Can u freeze the chili sauce if u make a large quantity at one go?
sorry, I have not tried freezing this chilli before as we use it up within a week. If you do freeze it, let me know how it goes :)
Can I substitute the lime with lemon?
although the aroma is slightly different, you can substitute lime with lemon juice.
