Chilli sauce/chilli marinade a la shawarma~ Secret recipe club challenge 17th September 2012

This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try  it and blog about it.
My assigned blog was Heidi's World . This blog is written in Danish but the recipes could be translated using the google translate button.I chose the easy chilli sauce/chilli marinade a la shawarma recipe to recreate as I was planning to have a barbecue and it would be perfect for marinading the vegetables.The only changes I made were that 1 added a medium ripe tomato to the sauce to add more substance to the marinade and to reduce the heat..The original recipe can be found here.

Fiery Chilli sauce marinade that will jazz up any vegetable for grilling or barbecuing,


4 tablespoons ketchup
1 medium ripe tomato blended to a  smooth  puree
4 tablespoons sunflower oil
4 cloves crushed garlic
4 teaspoon of red chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt


1.In a bowl add the  ketchup, blended tomato puree, oil, garlic and chili flakes and mix  well.
2.Season with cumin, lemon juice and salt.
3. Leave the sauce to rest for a few hours until ready to use.Use as a marinade for vegetables.

  1. This looks like it would add a lot of flavor to vegetables. Great SRC pick! :)
