    Although not the simplest, Kasma's recipes are great:

        I believe satay is actually Malay.

            OK, so I'm an Aussie living in Shanghai and don't have a malay bone in my body but Asian food delights me and this truly amazing and authentic recipe comes from a malaysian friend and her mother. It is lip-smackingly delicious with complex flavour. I find the leftovers freeze well.

            Blend or grind 4 tbsp chili paste (halve this for mild heat), 6 cloves of garlic, 2-3 med red onions, 2 stalks lemongrass, 3 candlenuts (or macadamia nuts), 1/2 tsp coriander powder, 1/2 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp turmeric and 1tsp belacan.

            Heat 1/2 cup vegetable oil, add ground ingredients and cook until the oil separates from the mixture

            Add 2 tbsp tamrind juice, 3 cups of coconut milk, 3 tbsp sugar and salt to taste. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

            Add 2 cups of coarsely pounded roasted peanuts and simmer for a further 10 minutes

            Enjoy it!

              '2-3 red onions' is a HUGE quantity. I suspect they are actually using shallots, which are used in Asian cooking a lot and are much smaller than actual red onions.
