anyone got a peanut / satay sauce recipe??
red thai curry would be great too
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
