peri peri sauce recipePeri Peri Sauce Recipe is the home of Portuguese cuisine. It gives you a hot and fiery sensation when used as the dipping sauce with chicken.

I have come across this recipe when I wanted to have Chicken Espetada Recipe, It’s not just chicken recipes it goes well with snacks like French fries and other chicken tikka recipes.

Sometimes when I am short of pizza sauce, I use this recipe to cover the pizza base and then put vegetables and yummy cheese. For making tangling pizza, along with this sauce, I use tomato sauce.

I have used both lemon juice and vinegar, if you don’t want to use vinegar, you can increase the quantity of lemon juice (2 tbsp. as a supplement). Sometimes you may feel spicier than you expected. In this scenario, you can adjust spiciness with lemon juice.
