SATE AYAM, Indonesian delicious chicken satay

Written by: Susanna Sunarno

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

SATE AYAM

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

Sambal:

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.
