Belgian Samurai sauce.

Belgian Samurai sauce is a hot sauce traditionally made with tomatoes, paprika and red peppers.  Ideal with snacks, chicken and red meat. Although the store bought sauce (from Devos Lemmens) tastes really good, I wanted to make my own version of it. Without paprika,  but with intense flavored tomato powder.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped very fine
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Mace (a spice derived from the aril of nutmeg)
  • 1/4 tsp ground Caraway seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp tomato powder
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 red chili, seeds removed
  • 1/8 tsp saffron
  • 1/4 tsp cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Method:

  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a small pan. Add the garlic and fry gently over medium heat until tender and fragrant.
  • Add mace, cumin and caraway seeds, and fry briefly.
  • Add a tablespoon of water, remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Once cooled down, add the remaining ingredients and blend until you get a creamy consistency.
  • Season to taste.
