  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons sambal oelek, make sure ingredients are only chiles, vinegar and salt
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


  1. Stir sugar and water together in a small saucepan, then stir in sambal. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and whisk in rice vinegar and lime juice. Cool.
  2. Sweet Chili Sauce may be used immediately or refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.


  • We know that this is a condiment that you would typically buy and perhaps it feels like a bit off to-do to make it, but it is very easy and lasts a long time. Give it a try!
