Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7/fan 200C. Toss the garlic, chillies and onion in half the oil on a small roasting tin. Roast for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned (right). Skin the onion and garlic, seed the chillies then blend in a food processor with the remaining oil, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce until you have a chunky sauce. Add 1-2 tbsp of water to thin to a spoonable consistency if needed.

  2. Spoon the jam into a small bowl set on a platter and surround with the vegetables. Ask your guests to help themselves to vegetables, then spoon over the jam.

I agree with the comment above. It smelled awful. Couldn't bring myself to taste it, maybe it tasted better than it looked or smelled.

The combination of flavours are just off. I didn't serve it. It was off putting just to smell it. I couldn't bring myself to taste it.

Apologies to the creator of the recipe but this is a miss...
