Homemade Piri Piri

CHEF’S NOTE: On our table for pretty much every savoury meal, chilli is our favourite condiment. This is a recipe form my primo, Sergio – he’s bringing the heat!


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground dried chilli (add less or more, depending on your preference)
  • 3 tbsps cider vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius
  • Place all the ingredients (except the cider vinegar) into an oven safe saucepan with a lid and mix until they are well blended.
  • Place in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Once cooled, stir well, pour into a blender and blend for 5 seconds. Then add in the cider vinegar and blend for a further 30 seconds or until you have a smooth sauce.
  • Place in a jar and cover. This can be kept in the for up to 7 days.
