  • 6 large red chillies
  • 600 g ripe tomatoes
  • 75 g ginger, chopped

  • 5 clove garlic

1. Put the chillies, whole tomatoes, including the skin and seeds, ginger, fish sauce and garlic into a blender or food processor and blend to a purée.

2. Put the vinegar and sugar into a medium saucepan, add the purée from the blender and slowly bring to the boil, stirring frequently and removing any scum that may come to the surface.

3. Cook for 30 40 minutes, stirring frequently until a 'jam' consistency is reached.
