Yesterday, I went to see my niece in a hospital. She is 3.5 year old girl who looked really really bored of being hospitalized though she’s been a few days there. In the hospital cafetaria, I ate Sate Ayam. A food you can find it everywhere all over Indonesia. Now, I want to share it with you.
Here’s a recipe I found in a book ‘Indonesian Cuisine’ by Indonesian Ministry of Trade
400 G CHICKEN MEAT, 1 x 2 CM CUBED 2 TBSP DARK SWEET SOY SAUCE
1 TBSP margarine, melted 16 satay skewers
Fried shiced shallots 1/2 tsp pepper 1/2 tsp salt
100 g peanuts, 1 tbsp sliced red chilies. 1 1/2 sliced capsicums
50 ml dark sweet soy sauce 3 tsp sliced shallots 1 tbsp lime juice
- Mix the chicken meat with salt and pepper. Put the chicken meat pieces into bamboo skewers, about 4-5 to each skewer.
- Mix wee the dark sweet soy sauce and the melted margarine. Dip the satay thoroughly to the mixture and then grill over a charcoal stove. turn over several times until the satay thoroughly cooked and turns to brown.
- To make peanut sambal: Blend peanuts, chilies, and capsicums into a paste. Mix with dark sweet soy sauce,shallots, and lime juice
- Serve the satay with the peanut sambal and sprinkle with friend sliced shallots.
Now, you can make your own satay… Bon a petite…!
