  • Add all 3 ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to a low boil over medium heat.
  • Whisk the ingredients together about every minute. 
  • After about 5 minutes, drop a small amount of the sauce into a glass of cold water. If the sauce turns into a cloud, the sauce will be very thin. Retest the sauce every minute or so until the sauce turns into a small ball when dropped into the ice cold water. Depending on the temperature of your stove, this should take between 5-10 minutes.
  • If subbing coconut milk (rather than using coconut cream), this process will take longer. I also found that the mixture foamed more while I am cooking it, so I needed to turn it down a bit more. It doesn't get quite as thick as the sauce made with coconut cream, but we still really enjoyed it.
