However, if experts are to believe, it was created in Zhongshan City, which is located in the Guangdong province of China. It soon travelled to South East Asia and Thailand, where it became a culinary mainstay.
Sweet chilli sauce is made from a combination of sugar, vinegar, and red chilli peppers. The sugar provides sweetness, while the vinegar gives the sauce a tangy flavour. The chilli peppers give the sauce its heat, which can vary depending on the type of pepper used and the amount included in the recipe.
