Dip it Vietnamese: The ‘Nước Mắm Sauce’

What an enrichment, easy to make, rich in taste, obligatory for the previous ‘Banh Bot Loc‘ cake.

To get a regular bowl of this sauce you need 5 nice cloves of garlic and 2 red chilies which you grind in a mortar. To that you add 6 teaspoons of sugar, the legendary and oh so magical fish sauce until  it’s liquid enough and a thumb sized piece of lemon squeezed into it. Done!!!
