Debate is still raging over the exact origins of this Thai hot sauce, and there are several different stories about who invented it. Made from chillies, garlic and vinegar it’s like a spicy, garlicky ketchup and has become something of a cult product. The chillies and garlic are given a brief three-day ferment with some sugar to boost the process a little bit, then blended into the classic smooth sauce we’re familiar with. The homemade product blows the bottled stuff out of the water, and is very simple to make.

This recipe makes about 1 litre.
