This is my Grandma's special fried vegetarian chilli sauce that goes well with plain white rice. It is spicy, taste a bit sweet and sourish. I do not have her exact recipe but I tried making it. Taste is slightly different as I add wild torch ginger flower to make it more aromatic. You can omit it, still has it's unique taste.
