We supply a wide variety of chilli and tamarind pastes and sauces.
Chilli is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum. It was originated in the Americas, and was brought to Asia by the Portuguese navigators during the 16th century. Red chillies contain large amounts of vitamin C, B vitamins, and small amounts of carotene.
Thai chilli paste is a popular condiment served in Thai, Mexican, and Asian cooking, where the main ingredient is chilli. It is used either as a cooking ingredient or as a seasoning for a dish after preparation.
Chilli sauce, on the other hand, is a condiment prepared with chillies and red tomato as primary ingredients. Chilli sauce may be hot (as in Sriracha hot chilli sauce) or sweet (as in Thai sweet chilli sauce).
Sriracha hot chilli sauce is a type of hot chilli sauce made from a paste of chillies, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. It is named after the coastal city of Si Rach in the Chonburi Province of Eastern Thailand.
Thai sweet chilli sauce, on the other hand, contains refined sugar in its preparation in addition to rice vinegar, garlic, and fish sauce.
