Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

I saw this recipe a while back in a Rick Stein cookery book. It's so easy to make - takes a few minutes and you're all done. Perfect with Thai fishcakes.

Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

You will need:
50ml white wine vinegar

100g caster sugar
1½tbsp water
2 tsp Thai fish sauce
50g cucumber, diced very finely

25g carrot, diced very finely
25g onion, chopped very finely
2 red bird's eye chillies, sliced thinly

How to do it:
Gently heat the vinegar, sugar and water in a small pan until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil for 1 minute, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Stir in the fish sauce, cucumber, carrot, onion and chillies. Pour into four small dipping saucers.

  2. Magic! It won't mind me leaving out the fish sauce I hope! It will still be so tasty!

  3. I have been eyeing this over and over Jan. It may just show up soon over at MTBT.
