Who doesn't love Satay sauce? Now I am not a fan of peanuts on their own but I do love a great satay. It goes well with almost anything. Use it as a dip, stir it in as a sauce or pour over as a topping.
Satay sauce goes by many names and is widely found in the cusines of Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and even Africa.
The core ingredient in a good Satay Sauce is of course the peanuts, ground and roasted to a fine powder.
These days we take the easy way out and use store-brought peanut butter! I prefer the smooth kind but if you are a fan of the crunchy then by all means, go for it!
Our Satay Spice Blend has a fine balance of spicy and earthy with cumin, chilli and sesame seeds. These ingredients have been chosen to balance the richness of the peanuts. As you assimilate all the ingredients gently over a low heat the flavours meld together into something quite special.
Today we are making Satay sauce with udon and kale. You can use any kind of noodle and any kind of vegetable to go with it, it is entirely upto you!
You can also use the sauce as a dip at your next party. Ditch the supermarket dips and make this one within a few minutes. Your guests will be amazed!
Without further delay, lets find out how to create a one-of-a-kind satay sauce!
