Nam Prig (Hot Chilli Chutney)Cuisine: ThaiDifficulty: Medium
In Thailand they like their food very chilli hot, Madhuban Thai Curry Sauces are medium hot. Heat-lovers can boost the heat level by adding chillies, or by eating this chutney as accompaniment to their meal.
2 or 3 small hot fresh red and /or green chillies
Thai Fish Sauce (Nam Pla)
- Finely chop the chillies, deseeding if necessary
- Add the Soy and Fish sauce
- Serve at once or leave to marinate overnight.
- Thai chilies are the tiny bird’s-eye variety. These are exceedingly hot, so handle carefully. They don’t need deseeding. Most Supermarkets sell bigger, less potent chilies, which are rather pithy and do need deseeding.
