I haven’t posted anything on my blog for a while. My excuse is that I was so busy at work, however I never stop cooking I just don’t have time to write my blog, that’s all. I also post a lot of photos on Instagram. The good thing about Instagram is that by writing a short description and quickly posting the photo I know straight away who likes my food. You can find me @charinyas_kitchen.

The recipe I would like to share this time is “Sweet ‘n’ spicy Sriracha wings”, with the recipe from taste.com.au magazine and using Marian Gasby’s recipe.
Sriracha sauce is a spicy chilli sauce from Thailand that is now in use around the world. Thai people use it as a dipping sauce. I remember eating it with chips. You will see Sriracha sauce in many Vietnamese restaurants as a condiments for rare beef noodle soup (Pho). Do you know Sriracha is a district in Chonburi (about 1 hr. drive from Bangkok)? This is where the factory is located. Let’s have a look at the recipe.

Ingredients

• 1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
• 60 ml (1/4 cup) light soy sauce
