This dip goes well with ayam goreng and white rice. It is also delicious with mee hoon sup berempah. For a less spicy sauce, use just one bird’s eye chilli.


  • 2 red chillies
  • 3 bird’s eye chillies
  • 1 shallot, peeled and diced
  • 4 Tbsp sweet soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
  • Salt, to taste


  • Remove the seeds from the red chillies for a less spicy sauce. Chop the red chillies and bird’s eye chillies finely. Place in a small bowl.
  • Add the shallot, sweet soy sauce, lime/lemon juice and salt and mix well. Serve in small saucers.
