How Do You Cook Malaysian Peanut Sauce?
Peanut sauce is usually eaten with sate/satay. The main ingredient is peanut. Authentic peanut sauce is made from fresh peanut, not peanut butter. In Malaysia fresh peanuts are roasted and then grounded. The consistency of the grounded peanuts depends on individual taste. Some like it smooth and some like it crunchy. Normally the sauce you find in Malaysia is crunchy. If you don’t have time to roast and grind the peanuts you can use peanut butter (smooth or crunchy). I prefer the super crunchy kind. Peanut sauce can also be used as a dipping sauce. 1. Heat olive oil in a small to medium size pot on medium high heat. 2. Add shallots and garlic. Stir fry for a minute or two. Make sure the garlic does not burn. 3. Add in sambal olek and curry powder. You can omit sambal olek if you don’t want the sauce to be spicy. You can always add later. 4. Stir the ingredients for a few seconds. Add coconut milk and stir to mix well. 5. Add in water, peanut butter, sugar, salt and pepper. 6. Add 1 cup
