You will find Birds Eye Chillies in most UK supermarkets, (they are also know as Piri Piri Chillies, African Red Devils), Nando’s has popularised the name Piri Piri, so that it what we will call the sauce.

This is a nice easy recipe, it takes about an hour to make


  • 20-30 Fresh Birds Eye Chillies (Piri Piri Chillies)
  • 1 Bulb Garlic (peeled and chopped)
  • 5cm Length Fresh Ginger (peeled and chopped)
  • 3 Shallots (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 Lemon (Zest and Juice)
  • 1 tbs Clear Honey
  • 1 tbs Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Water as required

Remove the stalk and place the chillies in a food processor with the Garlic, Ginger, Shallots and a little water and blitz into a rough paste, then add to a pan with the other ingredients and bring to a boil, add water as needed to get the consistency you want, simmer for 20 minutes, and them allow to cool.

Once cool return to the food processor and blitz until smooth, should make a few bottles depending on the thickness, before bottling make sure your bottles are clean and sterilised, the sauce will keep will in the fridge for a few months, but will improve over the first couple of weeks.
