Best Hot Sauce For Rice
When it feels like you have nothing in the to eat and you go digging through your pantry, white rice tends to be buried somewhere in the back.
Plain white rice is boring, so what is there to do?
Thankfully, there are a lot of creative ways to jazz rice up.
You can butter and salt it up.
You can add fresh herbs like basil, parsley, or cilantro.
Or, your best decision…add hot sauce!
Take a look at our list of what the best hot sauces for rice are, and what you can do to make your rice dishes more memorable…and flavorful!
Want a hot sauce that is Bermuda inspired but will pair well with asian flavors? Dark Swizzle will do it. As seen in our blog’s main image, we stir fried in some egg, added soy sauce, and sesame seeds. The ginger and clove, as well as the citrus flavors, absolutely turned nothing into something.
If you’re been cursed with boring rice dishes time and time again, give yourself a good curse with Halogi’s Tyrfing’s Curse, which certainly brings the heat due to the Habanero, Ghost, and Scorpion peppers, but the mustard, turmeric, and herbs with the orange juice give a unique citrusy sting.
A West Indies tropical and zesty treat! Scotch Bonnets provide the heat, the mustard-base with the peaches and curry combo gives you a unique hot sauce worthy of the islands, and your bowl of rice!
An absolute must for any Indian-themed rice dishes. Everything Karma Sauce makes is fantastic, but I found this one sitting in the back of my fridge for awhile neglected. After ordering some Indian take-out, I busted Curry Karma out and remembered how amazing this is. Even with all of the awards it has won, I definitely think it is still underrated. Get some biryani and you’ll agree with me!
Be careful with this one. Not only with the heat, but it runs a little thinner than the rest of the sauces on this list. You’ll love it so much, you’ll poor the whole bottle out if you don’t stop yourself! If you love Carolina Reaper sauces and Thai rice dishes, you found your next forever sauce.
