This is one stuff which will blow your socks off, it is seriously addictive. Once you start consuming it, you should find excuses to make it again and again. I have been longing to make this sauce, ever since one of my reader(and i thank him/her) requested this recipe a long time back. But i feel so sorry that i didn't try this before, it is that good.
So yesterday, i was going through my to do recipes, and found this sauce lying in the corner longing to be made. Immediately i got into actions. I googled a bit and found that i have all the ingredients on hand(This doesn't need that big list too). So i made it, in less than 20 mins everything came together beautifully. Now i have a jar of smartness on my hand. Time to whip up some fried goodies. My favorite is spring rolls, whats urs?
