For the green sauce ppl. My gf's dad mentioned to me that i should try using cilantro seeds(coriander as its known in the US). He said "if you've tasted cilantro seeds you'll know it resembles the KT green sauce". I have yet to try it but want to get a bit more educated on the best way to use them.

i found this which only helps his theory:
The dry fruits are known as coriander seeds or coriandi seeds. In some regions, the use of the word coriander in food preparation always refers to these seeds (as a spice), rather than to the plant itself. The seeds have a lemony citrus flavour when crushed, due to the presence of the terpenes linalool and pinene. It is also described as warm, nutty, spicy, and orange-flavoured. They are usually dried but can be eaten green.

maybe used in the red sauce also.

Sadly one of the reasons i want to figure it out is because theyre so freakin stingy with it. You would think after charging so much for their food they would be kind enough to give it out.

I dont know why the people serving the food enforce it. It doesnt cost them anything. theyre still getting their paychecks.

let me know how it came out. also something i pondered up but havent been able to try is instead of using traditional vinegar use the vinegar juice from those little peppers they have at your typical mom and pop burger stand. ya know the yellow ones in yellow vinegar. for some reason i always had a hint of that vinegar in the green sauce. might not work for the red sauce but figure one out and im sure we get the other

Just recently found this site but ive been trying to figure out the green sauce recipe for awhile now. I havent had time to make a batch myself and tweek things here and there but everytime i have leftover sauce from my local mexican food place(that i trust none of the water down sutff) i try and tweek that.

some of you say that the sauce is missing something and no matter how hard i tried i felt that i was missing something too in the green sauce. i recently found that chicken stock powder cubes give it a distinct KT flavor, well atleast for the green sauce. i figured since it got me closer for having my sauce taste like KT green sauce it might be in the red sauce also. Growing up in a mexican family you put that Knorr chicken stock in just about anything(rice, soup, meat..ect)

dont know what im talking about heres a link
