Spicy Dilis Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon banana ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/8 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 1/4 cups dried dilis
  • 1/2 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 siling labuyo
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds toasted


  • In a small bowl, mix banana ketchup, hot sauce, sugar, chili powder, and sesame oil. Set aside.
  • In a dry nonstick frying pan over low heat, add dried dilis. Cook, stirring constantly to prevent burning, until heated through. Add and stir in oil until dilis are well coated.
  • Pour ketchup mixture with the dilis and stir to mix. Continue cooking and stirring until the sugar has dissolved, the mixture begins to dry, and the dilis are well coated.
  • Remove from heat and stir in siling labuyo and sesame seeds while still hot. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.
