CAN I SUBSTITUTE PINEAPPLE JUICE?
You can substitute the pineapple juice with plain water. But then it will not be Sweet Chili Pineapple Sauce any more. But the sauce will still be delicious.
The amount of sugar depends on the sweetness of pineapple juice. So adjust sugar accordingly. The amount of chilli flakes to use again depends on how hot it is.
CAN I USE FRESH RED PEPPERS?
Authentic Thai Sweet Chili Sauce uses fresh red chilli peppers. Depending on how hot is the pepper, adjust the quantity. Put them in a food processor and mince really fine.
Use this sauce to make a variation of this SWEET AND SPICY THAI GRILLED CHICKEN.
