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.

    You’re hardcore! I can’t handle that much spicy so I just barely dip it into chili sauce.

    I can’t eat anything insanely hot anymore. All these years of living overseas tone down my tolerance of heat.

    So many seeds! I don’t think I can take this heat! I like chili but not to the extent of the chili numbing me much and I can’t taste other food anymore! :O

    Neturalize the heat???!!! And give up those endorphins? No Way!! I don’t know what our heat level is, but everytime we’re in Thailand the people always have fun telling us we eat like the locals- love local street foods!
    On my FB wall I posted this question for you- “Gonna have to try this one! It’s a little different from the one we use (learned to make in Thailand) using green and red chilies, w/sugar, naam pla, vinegar,limes & garlic- if it has a name, can you tell it to me?” Thanks Noob!

      do you mean the name of the sauce you learned in Thailand? I’m not too well versed in Thai food but it sounds like a “Prik Nam Pla” (chillis in fish sauce). your recipe sounds yummy!
