I love the story of how we named our third delicious sauce – a flavoursome combination of chilli, carrot, olive oil and ginger… When we started Pauli’s Food Co, we started selling our Brinjali and Tomali sauces at food markets. People loved the flavours bursting from our colourfully labelled jars – and they would ask us “Don’t you have something hotter?” (well, those who loved chilli would ask that). So Pauli developed our Something Hotter product – cooking together carrots, red chillies, fresh ginger and garlic, oregano and filling the bottle with cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. It was a hit! And heat seekers were happy to be able to add to their collection of Pauli’s sauces. This product is sugar and sweetener free – so it is super healthy and can be eaten with everything, with no worry of eating a chilli product with harmful preservatives, hidden sugars or colourants. Completely natural and oh so good!
This is a simple recipe using Pauli’s Something Hotter:
Thai Beef Curry
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
400 g of beef strips (you can substitute with chicken / vegetables)
300 g baby marrow, julienned
150 g chopped butternut
100 g red pepper, julienned
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
30 g of finely chopped ginger
1 tablespoon of Pauli’s Something Hotter (add more if you like heat)
30 g fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 can of coconut milk
Heat the coconut oil, add the red onion and sauté until the onion softens. Add the Pauli’s Something Hotter and ginger, sauté for another minute. Add the beef strips and brown all the ingredients together (cooking on a medium heat for about another 2 minutes).
Add the baby marrow, butternut and red pepper and cook together for another minute. Add the coconut milk and bring the heat down to low. Add the honey and soy sauce (these ingredients will ensure the right balance between sweet and savoury). Cook until the butternut is soft (about another 12-15 min on low heat). Serve with Jasmine or Cauli Rice. Garnish with the chopped basil.
Yours in Good Food, Dianne.
