Ginger And Lime Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Mam Gung)

Anyone that had been to a Vietnamese restaurant before would be somehow familiar with nouc cham  (Vietnamese dipping sauce) as it is served alongside almost everything. This is a wonderful alternative to that, it goes really well with poached or grilled chicken, meat and seafood. 

makes 1 cup
you'll need;
3 bird chilies
1 green chili
5 cm knob of ginger, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
4 tbs of sugar
1/3 cup of fish sauce
3 tbs of lime juice
4 tbs of water

Mince the aromatics.

Place chopped ingredients in a bowl then add sugar, lime juice, fish sauce and water. Mix well and check for seasonings.

This will keep well for up to a week in the fridge.
