Homemade Chicken Satay and Peanut dipping sauce

Chicken Satay is very famous in Malaysia, and it has been listed in my to-do-list long time ago. Recently I just made this satay for one of the dinner at home.

Homemade Chicken Satay and Peanut dipping sauce

-Homemade peanut dipping sauce,very thick and full of peanut aroma..

I hope next time I can try out Ketupat(rice dumpling) that wrap with woven palm leaf pouch but not plastic bag (easy to find this ready packet in supermarket).

tigerfish said...

I have not done satay for so so so so long! You are tempting me. Oh and that sauce looks like power! Yes, I have tried those ketupat wrapped in plastics too. Next time you can try making them using leftover rice - squeeze them tight in a tupperware/air-tight container; next, cube them once set in shape. I was worse the last time I made satay. I used bottled dipping sauce.

I love chicken satay and peanut dipping sauce. My daughter requests it often! I took a photo the last time I made it, but didn't post it because I, like tigerfish used a bottled dipping sauce. After eating it I thought...why'd I do that?, it just wasn't worth it eating the bottled kind. So bad! I'll try this!

Jeannie said...

The satay looks good! I like the spices sticking to it. And of cos the sauce must tastes very good! Great photos!
