Total time:

Ingredients:

Tomatoes, large: 4 whole
Onion, small: one whole
Garlic: one clove
Habanero Chilli Peppers (scotch bonnets): two whole
Ginger, fresh: 0.5 inch cube (1.5cm cube), without skin
White wine vinegar: 1 tbsp
Soy Sauce, dark: 1 tbsp
Bay leaves: 2 whole
Spinach: as desired
Water: 1/2-1 dl
Olive oil: 3 tbsp

Directions:

  1. Fry onion and garlic in oil, cook on medium temperature. A pot with a thick base will be ideal for even heat and to prevent sticking.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes, continue cooking until tomatoes turn to paste.
  3. Wear plastic gloves or put some oil on your fingers for cutting the chillies, to avoid getting chilli in your eye, etc.
  4. Add bay leaves, chopped chillies and other ingredients gradually. Keep cooking on medium temperature.
  5. Add some chopped spinach for colour (optional).
  6. Stir occasionally to ensure the sauce doesn't stick to the pan. Add a little water as necessary (not too much!).
  7. Simmer for 30 minutes minimum. The chilli seeds get a little less hot when you cook the dish for longer and the flavours develop. You could simmer it on low heat for as long as 2 hours.

Serving Tips:

This chilli sauce recipe goes especially well with the salmon curry.

Health Benefits of Red Chillies:

"The World's Healthiest Foods" (Whfoods.com) reports that red chillies have been reported to fight inflammation, work as a natural pain reliever, reduce cholesterol, be good for the heart and veins, dissolve blood clots, help clear mucus, lose weight, etc. In the same article it is stated that they may also lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, help you lose weight and help stop the spread of prostate cancer. I assume all these benefits would only come from continued and regular use of red chillies.

Additional Time and Money-Saving Tips

Make plenty of this chilli sauce and store it in a freezer, so that you can just melt as much as you need in preparation for a new week. Heat up before serving.

Canned tomatoes can also be used although fresh tomatoes will provide more health benefits.

This is one of the many chilli sauces my boyfriend makes. His cooking, and definitely the amount of chilli he uses (!), is primarily influenced by West African cooking.
