  1. Make sure you discard the seeds from the chilli, but if you prefer your sauce to be extra hot, then you can add them in at your own risk.
  2. Combine the chilli, tomato and onion with the lime juice and salt in a small bowl. Let all the flavours blend for a couple of hours or overnight. Stir in the coriander just before serving. Ají is usually served in a small bowl with a teaspoon for serving, so chop the first three ingredients as finely as possible.
