Chinese Sweet and Sour Sauce

Nothing can beat homemade spice powders, sauces or else dips. Since they are homemade no preservatives are added, hence they are harmless for the health of our family members. Though some sauces or spice powders are seriously hard to be prepared as homemade, we dont have any other choice than picking them stores. However if you have an option to prepare yourself the spice powders or sauces at home, dont hesitate a second as they may be sometime very easy to dish out. Coming to my today's post, I am an ardent fan of chinese dishes.Obviously i love to prepare their dishes often at home. Some of the chinese sauces are seriously hard to prepare eventhough few of their sauces can be prepared at home with less efforts. One among those sauces is my today's recipe aka Chinese Sweet and sour sauce.

Priya your home made sweet and sour sauce looks so good. Brought back memories when years ago a Chinese Chef came to my sister in law's place and he taught us how to make this sauce.

this is one of the Chinese dishes I stay far away from I usually find it sickeningly sweet. but I think your homemade version is probably better than the take out restaurant version!
