Chinese Sweet And Sour Sauce

In this article I am going to show you how to make a very simple sweet and sour sauce. The best thing about this recipe is that you probably have everything you need in your house already. Many recipes online say that you need to use ketchup and pineapple juice however we will not be using these 2 ingredients in this recipe I am going to share with you today. I like to make sweet and sour sauce to go with my wontons however there are many different meals that it can go with.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon corn flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

  1. The first thing you need to do is get a pot ready to cook your sweet and sour sauce in.
  2. Now that you have your pot add all of the ingredients above to your pot. If you don't have corn flour you can use regular flour instead.
  3. Now get a whisk and give all of the ingredients a good mix until everything is well combined.
  4. Now turn the stove on and put it on a medium heat bringing it to a boil.
  5. Once the sauce starts to boil lower the heat so that it is simmering and leave it to simmer until it has thickened. This shouldn't take very long and should be ready within a few minutes
