amount unit name
16 ea dried red chili pods
1 ea hot water
2 ea cloves garlic
1 ea salt to taste


Open each dried red chili pod. Wash well inside and out and remove
blemishes. Remove stems, seeds and veins from the pods. For hotter
chili leave some veins. Rinse with cold water and soak in hot water
for one hour or until soft. Place the pods in an electric blender (or
food processor) and add enough water to almost cover them, leaving
about two inches headspace. Blend until smooth and skins disappear,
about 2-3 minutes. If sauce seems to be too thick, add more water and
blend for another 1 minute or until skins disappear. Add 2 cloves
garlic and process until well blended. Salt to taste.
