Simple Guide to Making Homemade Chilli Paste:


  • Finely chop some fresh chilli peppers, garlic, and onions in your food processor. You can throw in additional veggies if you wish.
  • Put a little olive oil in a pot along with the chopped mixture.
  • Cook for 20 minutes on low heat while letting it simmer.
  • Add any extra preferred seasonings and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Pour the concoction into a jar and allow it to cool slightly.
  • Refrigerate or use it to cook.
  • Red pepper flakes – if you enjoy spicy food, chances are you currently have a bottle of red pepper flakes in your pantry. While you can simply use them to add some heat to your meal, you can also make red pepper flakes into a paste for a thicker format.

The recipe yields a spicy and sweet chilli paste using only 3 ingredients: crushed red pepper flakes, soy sauce, and sugar. Here’s how you can make it:

  • Mix a tablespoon of the red pepper flakes with a dash of soy sauce and a few pinches of sugar to provide some thickness.
  • Muddle the mixture to create a paste-like consistency.
  • Hot Sauce – red chilli pepper paste isn’t the same as hot sauce, but when you need a substitute to add heat, hot sauce can be a good solution. There are 2 major differences between chilli paste and hot sauce.
