PREPARATION
1.
In a large pan, add the rice vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, soy sauce, and cayenne pepper.
2.
Heat over medium-heat while stirring, to dissolve the sugar.
3.
Increase the heat to medium-high and bring it to a boil.
4.
Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
5.
Add the red chili peppers and mix them through. Let it cook for a couple of minutes.
6.
Mix the cornstarch and 2 tbsp of water into a smooth slurry and add this to the sauce as well.
7.
While stirring frequently (to prevent the sauce from burning at the bottom), simmer the sauce for a further 5-10 minutes or till it reaches a desired thickness. Remember, the sauce thickens as it cools as well. If it thickens too much, add a little extra water to thin it out.
8.
If not using immediately, store in an airtight container.
