Satay Spice Blend
For making a tasty, home-made satay sauce with peanut butter.
Satay (sah-tay) is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, served with a sauce. Satay may consist of diced or sliced chicken, mutton, beef, pork, fish, other meats, or tofu; the more authentic version uses skewers from the midrib of the coconut palm frond, although bamboo skewers are often used. These are grilled or barbecued over a wood or charcoal fire, then served with various spicy seasonings.
3 tablespoons Satay Spice Mix
½ tablespoon peanut oil
½ tablespoon Gula Melaka or soft brown sugar (more to taste if desired)
6 tablespoons peanut butter
½ cup water (approx)
Heat a saucepan and dry roast the spice powder for about 1 minute – do not overcook. Add oil, gula melaka and peanut butter, stirring constantly. Slowly add water, still stirring, until desired consistency is achieved. Serve with skewers of chicken, lamb, pork, beef or seafood.
