Sugar added to hot pan to make caramel sauce

Step 1 - Cook caramel sauce

  • Place a large deep pan or wok over a medium high heat.

  • Do not stir the mixture, add more water if the sugar starts to crystalize.
  • Pour in the remaining 50 ml of water and the fish sauce, bring to a steady boil.
  • Add the garlic, chili (reserving some slices for garnish) and ginger and stir.
