    This is my quick and easy sweet and sour dipping sauce that I make when I have egg rolls, wontons or stir fried chicken.

    1. In a small saucepan over a medium low heat, whisk (using a metal whisk) together vinegar and cornflour. Add oil, pineapple juice, tomato sauce, brown sugar and salt and whisk constantly until the mixture is heated through.


    If you want to achieve a thicker consistency, dissolve another 1/4 teaspoon of cornflour in 2 or 3 tablespoons of cold water. Once dissolved, stir the mixture into the sauce and continue to heat and whisk until sauce thickens.

    This is a great all-round dipping sauce. I use it for spring rolls, coconut prawns and dumplings. I made it a bit thicker, and I also like it with a bit of chilli paste in it.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. This was really good! I was looking for a sauce to use to make sweet sour chicken with veggies and this worked great. I sauteed some chicken until browned, added sliced carrots, onions red capsicum, cooked for a few more minutes, then added the sauce and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. It thickened a little and coated everything nicely. Easy and tasty!  -  08 Oct 2008


    I thought this sauce was absolutely amazing, so much more flavourful than the red goo from the local takeaway.  -  08 Oct 2008
