It’s saucy, fiery, orange-red color is a clue to its dragon-breath-like quality, puffing wisps of burning heat in every single drop. My version tries to calm the flames by incorporating shallots and a tiny bit of sugar, but you will be the judge of their effectiveness. This is often the second sauce layer in some of the chaats, India’s popular street foods.
