Chili Paste (Chinese Chili Paste in Sri Lankan Style)






Chili Paste is popular among Sri Lankans, specially with Chinese Fried Rice. So this can be called as  Chinese Chili Paste. But I want to say Chinese food we find in Sri Lanka is bit different from actual Chinese Food I find in Singapore. However, still I love Sri Lankan Chinese Food. Our chefs have adapted many Chinese Recipes according to Sri Lankan taste. So can I say, Sri Lankan Chinese recipes are little bit spicy?



I have posted some Sri Lankan Chili Recipes before. Even there is another Chili paste recipe posted under Lamprais recipe(Lump Rice). Please check them.

Here is the recipe for Sri Lankan Style Chinese Chili Paste.
