Bang bang sauce is, not surprisingly, the sauce that normally accompanies bang bang chicken. If you're wondering, bang, bang is the noise of the wooden mallet used to flatten the cooked chicken to make it easier to shred.

I include it separately as it is such a delicious dip and it would be a nice accompaniment for a vegetarian dish as well as a chicken dish.

You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter instead of sesame paste.

Method

  1. Mix the sesame paste with 3 tablespoons of cold chicken stock
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, apart from the sugar and combine well
  3. Stir in sugar to taste

Alternatives

If you cannot get sesame paste or tahini then substitute smooth peanut butter, or just try it for a change.

Variations

If you have homemade lazy ginger, use the vinegar from that instead of white wine vinegar.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
