About 30 years ago, Ms Shariffah Fadthlon Alsagoff began selling her delicious homemade chilli sauce to friends and relatives. It proved to be a hit.
Today, her son Muhamad Sallehuddin bin Abdul Rahim is taking the family recipe to a bigger audience. Staying true to the product’s homely roots, he simply called it “My Mum’s Sauce”.
The generations-old recipe for the chilli sauce was passed down by Mr Sallehuddin’s great-grandfather to his grandmother, who then gave it to his mother. Said Ms Shariffah: “When she gave me the recipe, there were no strict measurements for the ingredients. It was all agak-agak (estimations) only.”
