Getting a kebab or shawarma is one of those things we reserve for moments of intense craving, takeaway, or late-night hunger attacks. Remember that flaming-hot, garlicky, red sauce you generously poured all over the wrap? Ever wondered how to get your hands on some of that goodness? Then just keep reading, as we will show you how to make a DIY “kebab shop” chilli sauce in less than 5 minutes.
You can enjoy our sauce whatever your diet. It is vegan (therefore dairy-free and egg-free), gluten-free and nut-free! A guaranteed success among all of your friends and loved ones.
We have picked healthy ingredients and kept fats to a minimum to help you avoid post-snack guilt. A whole serving is less than 80 kcal and adds less than 5% of your daily recommended dose of saturated fats. Awesome!
The level of spiciness will depend on your tolerance to hot food. If you are an intermediate “hot-head” then it’s probably worth buying medium-hot chillies from your local store and use the dose in the ingredient list below. But if you are into crazy stuff, then grab some ghost chillies or scotch bonnets! Just make sure you only use a tiny amount at first, as they are insanely hot (no joke).
You will notice in the ingredients below that we used shallots instead of onions. Shallots are a good alternative to onions when you are after a sweeter and gentler taste. For this reason, they are better than onions when eaten raw, which is what we will do in this recipe. But you can use half an onion if you prefer.
