Sweet chilli sauce

Sweet chili sauce (also known as Thai sweet chili sauce or sweet chilli sauce), known as nam chim kai in Thailand (Thai: น้ำจิ้มไก่; lit. "dipping sauce for chicken"), is a popular chili sauce condiment in Thai, Afghan, Malaysian, and Western cuisine. It is commonly made with red chile peppers (often 'Fresno Chili', thai or red jalapenos), rice wine vinegar, sometimes garlic, sometimes fish sauce and sweetening ingredient such as fruit or a refined sugar.[1]

It is popular as a dip in European Chinese restaurant dishes such as prawn toast, egg rolls, lettuce wraps, chicken wings and spring rolls. It can also be purchased in bottle form. In Australia, Europe and the United States, 'Thai sweet chilli sauce' is available as a condiment at many takeaway stores and supermarkets.[citation needed]
