Easy, No-Cook Fresh Chilli and Tomato Sauce (includes Thermomix instructions)

This is such a simple, tasty, no-cook chilli sauce it's well worth making - and quicker than nipping to the shop to buy some!

I make this for drizzling over home made doner kebabs (see here for my recipe to make your own delicious doner kebab meat), but if you're a fan of spicy sauces then you could use it in lots of other ways!

As it's made from fresh ingredients it will only keep in the fridge for a few days, but it's easily halved, and you can freeze what you don't need for another time.

If you want to reduce the heat, you can either reduce the number of chillies you use, or omit the seeds.

Calories: approximately 7 calories per tbsp, 273 calories for the whole batch.

[Calories in square brackets]
  • 2 large red chillies, sliced (including seeds) [12]
  • 450g tomatoes (about 5), core removed if desired and roughly chopped [90]
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed or grated [12]
  • 1 x 15ml tbsp white wine vinegar [3]
  • 2 tsp sugar [30]
  • 50g tomato puree [50]
  • 75g tomato ketchup [76]
  • 2 tsp salt (or to taste - maybe start with 1 tsp then add more if you want it)
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor, and blend until smooth [Thermomix 30 seconds / Speed 8, scrape down and repeat]. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Enjoy drizzled over anything that will benefit from a bit of chilli sauce - namely doner kebabs! Find the recipe for my doner kebab meat / lamb gyros here.
