Peanut Satay Sauce with Compressed Rice (Nasi Impit)

Peanut sauce or Satay sauce is a typical sauce made with a variety of spices and seasonings such as chili , coriander, cumin, caraway, garlic, shallot, ginger,palm sugar, lemongrass,coconut milk,tamarind juice and oil. I know alot of American love Thai's peanut sauce because it's taste tangy sweet compare with Malaysia's peanut sauce which is more spicy and powerful spices flavor.As a Malaysian ,I love Malaysia version peanut satay sauce compare with Thai's version,well maybe you can said I'm biased but I still prefer nutty and spicier peanut sauce than mild flavor sauce!.Here is my simple way of making peanut satay sauce..Hope you enjoy it! Ingredients:
1/2 cup sambal belacan paste
1 tbsp kurma powder
1 tbsp ground coriander powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 can coconut milk ,400 ml
2 large piece palm sugar or 200 gm coconut brown sugar
4 tbsp tamarind powder
salt to taste
1 lbs or 2 bowls fried peanut,grinded/crushed

You can buy ready pack compressed rice in plastic bag,boil following the instruction on the package.


1:Heat large wok or skillet at medium heat with sambal-belacan-paste.
Then add in coconut milk,kurma powder,coriander powder,palm sugar,sugar and tamarind powder.
2:Stir-fry all the ingredients until fragrant.Check the seasoning,keep stirring until the gravy become thicken,leave it to cool.Add in crushed peanuts into the gravy.
3:Serve with satay or compressed rice.

This sauce is suitable for serve with satay(BBQ meat on the stick) .If the sauce is too watery,add more crushed peanuts.
