  • To make the chilli-caramel, Place the palm sugar and water into a medium sized saucepan over a medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved then add in the garlic, chilli, tamarind and fish sauce. Bring up to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer for 6-8 minutes, or until the mixture is sticky and has thickened. Set aside.
