Insanely Hot Chilli Padi Dip

   

Chilli Padi Dip
Some like it insanely hot: My home made chilli padi dip

When I name my recipes, I’m always unimaginative and factual. Call a yam rice, yam rice and a chocolate lava cake, chocolate lava cake. With the same principles in mind, I am naming this dip an “insanely hot chilli dip” because that is exactly what it is. This chilli sauce is really potent because it is primarily made up of seeds-on chilli padi (bird’s eye chili). It is so hot that it is almost mindless – even though my nose was running and my eyes were tearing from dipping my foods in it (not a pretty sight), I still persisted because it is so shiok (Singapore slang; satisfaction for eating something yummy). I love to make this easy chilli dip for steamboat, specifically for dipping shabu shabu meat slices.

Want to try it out but can’t take the heat? You can de-seed the chilli (wear disposable plastic gloves to prevent chilli burn) and it will be manageable. I did that once and my guests do not find this chilli dip spicy at all. But if you leave the seeds on, and increase the number of chilli padi used, I dare say this dip is not for the faint hearted. You can adjust the heat of the dip by adjusting the number of chilli padi used (the more the hotter), and so I think the heat meter has no limit. My fiery threshold is 10-12 chilli padi (with a box of tissue next to me), what is yours?

Good news for chilli lovers – chilli is said to contain high levels of Vitamin C and can boost metabolism rate.

Ingredients

- 10 chilli padi (bird’s eyes chilli), sliced (adjust according to how hot you like)
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- juice of 2-3 limes
- 1 tsp sesame oil

Directions
1. Using a food blender, blend chilli padi and garlic cloves together for a few seconds. Scrap out the contents using a spoon to a small bowl.
2. Add light soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice to taste.

      I’m sure after a few rounds of “training”, you will progress to the “insane” level and increase the heat ;)

      I remembered buying bird’s eye chili by weight at a Melbourne supermarket and paid like S$5 (instead of S$0.50) for a small packet. So I know what you meant by “precious”. hehe

    This looks more deadly than the Thai chilli dip… great dip for steamboats. Hot (temperature) + Hot (taste) = very shiok :up: :D
