BM #101 Week 2 Day 1 - 

This week I shall post some condiments which enhance the main dish. I have been trying to make this Asian all purpose sweet and sour sauce for a while and it never happened until the other day.

It was simple and flavorful and went well with spring rolls. I used the leftover sauce to make noodles for the kids which they loved as well. The noodles recipe is for another day.  

I have never used Rice Wine Vinegar and I am not sure if the taste of the sauce will vary but I would love to try that as well in the future.

Ingredients - 

*Apple Cider Vinegar 1/4 cup
Honey 1/4 cup
Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp
Sesame Oil 1 Tbsp
Lime juice 2 tsp
Chili Garlic Sauce 1 tsp
Ginger, grated 1/2 tsp

*In almost all the recipes which I found online, rice wine vinegar has been used. Since I had Apple cider vinegar, I went ahead and used it.

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, chili-garlic sauce, ginger and whisk to combine.

Set the sauce aside and serve as an accompaniment to momos, spring rolls or use it to make noodles.


Preparation Time 5 minutes
Makes 1/2 cup (approximately)

  2. These simple sides add so much of flavor to the main dish!

  3. The sauce looks really good. And if it is so easy to make, I would make this for every Indo Chinese dish I make.

  4. While we had the restaurant , our chef made one of the best Sweet and sour variations ! Makes me nostalgic !

  5. I use rice wine vinegar a lot and prefer it to apple cider vinegar. The flavor of rice wine is milder to apple cider. This sauce looks like an all purpose sauce.

  9. I bought rice wine vinegar specifically for this sauce once and it has not been touched since while the other variety vinegars are gone in no time. This sauce forms a nice base for Asian style dishes.

  12. Awesome try ..looks just the same like in restaurants..
