Buddha’s Hot Sauce

Posted by on July 21, 2011

Buddha’s hot sauce is a lovely chilli sauce that can change even the biggest cynics mind from thinking natural food is boring and bland.  I am addicted to this as it reminds me of a home-made version of my beloved Sriracha sauce. A batch of this makes a lot so be ready to share. This stores really well:  in the refrigerator for up to a month in a closed container, or it can be canned or frozen for later use.

Start with an assortment of fresh, hot peppers such as pimento peppers, Thai chilies, jalapeño and serrano. For the brave ones, add in a habanero chili for some serious heat.

Assorted fresh hot peppers


Lightly grill the hot peppers to bring out a smoke flavor


Grill the peppers until blackened


Buddha’s Hot Sauce


1 1/2 cups smoked peppers
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup cilantro, fresh and chopped
apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


Blend ingredients until well mixed. Add apple cider vinegar as needed for a smoother consistency. Refrigerate overnight. Lasts for about 1 week in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Variation: Combine with 1 cup yogurt to reduce heat and use as a dip, sauce or marinade.
