This sauce is pretty versatile and can be used as marination or dressing. It brings some zest and spice to the dish.
The key ingredient of this sauce is the African red chilies.
I couldn’t find the African red chilies 🙁
So I used Red Jalapenos which taste equally good. You can use Thai red chilies too. In short, you can use any red HOT chilies.
