Use this paste in recipes that call for fresh chilis. Use sparingly as it is very hot!
- 3 small onions, in their skins
- 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 15 small red chilis
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place onions and garlic (both unpeeled) onto a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, then discard skins and roughly chop.
Place onions, garlic, chilis and sugar in a food processor and process into a smooth paste (if necessary, add some oil to help bind ingredients together).
Fry the paste in the remaining oil in a small saucepan and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the paste doesn't stick or burn. Store in a sterilized jar with a tight-fitting lid. Keeps for several months in a refrigerator.
