I have lately got a little addicted to this Satay sauce – I have it on everything! It is so delicious as a meal with rice/noodles and veggies or simply as a dip – I have also been having it with raw veggies in the afternoon for a snack – because I can’t wait till dinner to have some (haha).
It is so simple and has a couple of ingredients that you may not associate with Satay Sauce. Over the years I have learnt from many people who have cooked in my kitchens and have combined this knowledge with my own experience with flavours to come up with a cultural inspired sauce – that is also child friendly! I do add some chilli to mine afterwards. Also it depends on the type of curry powder you are using…if it is mild you can add a little more at the end – just a pinch at a time.
- 1 finely diced onion
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 2 teaspoons coconut/rapadura sugar
- 2 cloves garlic finely cut
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup coconut cream
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoon soya sauce/tamari
- 2-3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
- Lime rind – optional
In a saucepan saute the first 4 ingredients in the sesame oil until the onion is soft. Now add in the remaining ingredients and mix together until well combined. Bring the sauce to a simmer then remove from the heat. Taste your sauce and add some lime rind if desired. If it gets too thick add in some hot water.
This will keep in the fridge in an air tight jar/container for around 2 weeks.
I have made so many delicious dinners like stuffed satay veggie eggplants/sweet potatoes – rice noodles with tofu and satay sauce – satay pastry rolls and just simply added to my Earth Bowls (like in the picture). These are on my Instagram too!
I hope you find this Satay Sauce delicious and full of flavour! Please share your Satay Sauce meals with me by tagging me on socials.
