    I want to try this recipe but i have a question. In the ingredients under "for tossing," what is "chilli sauce" exactly? Is is a particular brand of sauce? Thank you.

    Chilli Sauce (Hot Sauce) is available is any of the chinese stores. You can also find it in Indian and American grocery stores. Any brand should be fine.
