Recipe help: thai egg roll dipping sauce
May 19, 2014 4:16 PM Subscribe
So I have googled, I promise. But I'm not sure I'm finding the right recipes. I want to make a dipping sauce like the stuff that almost every Thai place around here (Portland area) serves with their fried egg rolls / spring rolls / veggie rolls.

The thing is, all the kinds I've loved have been clear, or almost completely colorless, and quite thin in consistency. They aren't at all red or purple, so I don't think they have plum sauce or sweet chili sauce in them. So most recipes online are not really what I'm looking for, I don't think.
I'd like a recipe for a mostly colorless dipping sauce that is quite sweet, very tangy (lots of some kind of vinegar), fairly thin, and slightly spicy (the heat is optional). Do you have one?
