Making the honey chilli sauce
This is perhaps one of the best sauce that you can use to make other favorites like honey paneer or honey Chicken. 
To make the sauce first fry some chopped ginger and garlic till light brown then fry onions till translucent.

The best part of this wonderful sauce is that you don't need to add any corn flour slurry to thicken it. Honey makes everything  perfectly for the sauce.  You can use red chilly paste to make the sauce bright and glazing. I haven't use vinegar in this recipe because of tomato sauce which has the tangy flavour.
