Sizzling Homemade Sriracha Sauce: A Spicy Delight for Your Taste Buds!


Sriracha is a popular hot sauce that originated in Thai cuisine, though it has gained widespread popularity worldwide. It is known for its spicy, tangy, and slightly sweet flavour profile. Sriracha typically contains chilli peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.

Here is a simple recipe for making sriracha sauce at home:


1 pound red chilli peppers (such as red jalapeños or Fresno chillies)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt


Start by washing and drying the chilli peppers. Remove the stems and roughly chop them. Remember to wear gloves when handling chilli peppers to avoid any potential skin irritation or burns.

Combine the chopped chilli peppers, minced garlic, white vinegar, sugar, or salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and well combined.

Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.

Once the mixture has cooled, transfer it back to the blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

You can strain the sauce through a fine mesh sieve to remove any remaining solids if you prefer a smoother consistency.

Once you’ve made your homemade sriracha sauce, store it in a clean jar or bottle in the refrigerator. Rest assured, the flavours will continue to develop over time, ensuring a delicious and flavorful sauce whenever needed.

Homemade sriracha can be adjusted to suit your taste preferences by varying the type and amount of chilli peppers used and adjusting the levels of garlic, vinegar, sugar, and salt. Enjoy your homemade sriracha sauce on a variety of dishes, from stir-fries and noodles to sandwiches and soups. It also makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a flavorful addition to marinades.
