I always have this sauce in my fridge - it is the classic dipping sauce for Thai spring rolls (po piah), but it tastes great with any fried appetizer. It will last for a few weeks in the fridge.

This recipe is the "real deal"! And so simple! I spent several years in Thailand and this is THE recipe for this sauce. I have a sensitive palate so I used Aleppo pepper flakes (for the flavor but less heat) instead of the bird's eye chili and it was perfect! I will always have this in my fridge now! Read More

I didn’t have bird’s eye chilli, so I substituted with chili powder and a pinch of red pepper flakes. It’s absolutely delicious. Will definitely make this again. Read More

12.11.20 Enjoyed this spicy sauce on some vegetable spring rolls. So very easy to make, and it had the perfect level of spiciness for us. I used a sugar substitute to try to reduce the carbs, and it worked very well. I had some concerns about too much sugar and salt, but it all blended together perfectly. I’m glad I have some left because we’ll have this with some coconut shrimp next week. Read More
