Along with the coconut agar-agar, I also made satay for a BBQ potluck at a friend’s place. All 100 sticks of them!!! Phew! It was a lot of work. I wonder how the satay sellers make hundreds of sticks every night?
For the satay, I used my own marinade. Will add the recipe later. For the sauce, I used the easy satay sauce from Little Corner of Mine. It was really good!! Very easy too. Definitely save me a lot of work from grinding all the spices. Thanks LCOM for sharing : )
Satay was served along with some ketupat (I cheated on this & used the NONA brand ketupat. All I have to do is to boil it.), cucumber & onion.
Thanks to DH for a great grilling job! Here’s a satay grilling shot. Like pro eh?? hehe… Must give him a little credit otherwise he won’t grill it for me next time : P I have no idea how to use that complicated grill of his!!!!
P/S: A & K , If you are reading this, thanks for organizing this gathering. Had a really fun time!!! : )
Edited to add recipe for satay:
700 gm chicken – If possible, add a little bit of chicken fat to make it moist
5 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp coriander
½ tsp tumeric
2 tsp cumin
½ tsp fennel – preferably grounded
1 stalk lemon grass
Mix 1 tbsp oil & 1 tbsp coconut milk together
1. Blend garlic, ginger, shallots & lemongrass with a little oil till it is a paste.
2. Add # 1 and the rest of the spices (except the glazing liquid) to the meat & marinate overnight.
3. Before skewering the satay, make sure to soak the skewers for at least 2 hours to prevent burning.
4. Skewer & grill for about 3-4 min on each side. Use the glazing liquid to glaze the satay a couple of times.
