1 tsp. fish sauce
- Puree all the ingredients, except oil, in a blender.
- Heat oil over medium-high heat and pour pureed ingredients into oil.
- Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and simmer for close to an hour, stirring occasionally.
- When all the liquid is absorbed and the sauce thickens and reduces by half, adjust salt to taste, stir well and continue to simmer until the oil resurfaces and floats to the surface.
- Bring to room temperature and serve as a dip with vegetables.
