Insanely Hot Chilli Padi Dip

Insanely Hot Chilli Padi Dip

For the insanely hot version, don’t de-seed the chilli. Adjust the heat of the dip with the number of chilli padis used (the more the hotter). De-seeding the chilli will make them much milder and more manageable. Wear disposable plastic gloves when de-seeding chillis to prevent chilli burn.


  • 10 chilli padi (bird’s eyes chilli) sliced; adjust according to how hot you like
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • juice of 2-3 limes
  • 1 tsp sesame oil


  1. Using a food blender, blend chilli padi and garlic cloves together for a few seconds. Scrap out the contents using a spoon to a small bowl.
  2.  Add light soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice to taste.

  1. You’re a woman after my own heart! I’ve never been defeated by chile, and I love how it immediately clears your head.

  2. Hi wiffy,

    Yes this is wonderful dip. it so great to go with steam boat.(i did it and really love it)

    I even cooked the drunken prawn from your recipes. Wow! is really wonderful and i go with the dip. shiok! You will never had enough for only 10 prawns. Ha! ha! ha! Thank you for all the recipes and i not worry how to cook with the food in my fridge.he he …

    I like to know more about thermal magic cooker as i had one at home which different brand. I was told to put all the ingredients into the inter-pot and cook in high heat and let it boil for 10-20min then put it into the external one(am i right?). Not like we used to cook soup, take about 1-2hr in low heat after it boil.

  3. instead of blending, could i chop or mince up the chili padi and garlic finely then add the rest of the ingredients? Might be less hot

  4. Hi Wiffy, you really like ur fiery chilli :-) I must try ur recipe with steamboat one day. I do blend my own chilli too, though I do add a few normal chilli ( maybe 1 large to 20 Padi?), ginger and a bit of sugar ( else it’s too bitter). I would make a lil bottle and serve some with lime at every meal. Shiok! When cooking chicken rice, I would use this chilli and add sesame oil, soya sauce :-) how can anyone eat without chilli :-)

    • sounds good and glad to meet another chilli lover. For chicken rice chilli, I like to add chicken stock to blend with some garlic … really resembles those at chicken rice stall!

  5. Just love your recipe. You made cooking sounds so simple. Will be trying a few of your recipes soon.

    In your directions point 1, what does “pulse” means?

    • Hi Eileen, thanks. Just blend it for a few seconds until the texture is to your liking. Will change the wording.
