Thai Peanut Sauce
Peanut sauce is such an amazing sauce. It 's rich, thick, smooth, and flavorful. Peanut sauce is a dipping sauce that well known. We like to eat it with Chicken Satay (grilled chicken strip on a skewer).
Making Peanut Sauce
If you have had peanut sauce before, you may feel intimidated to make the sauce yourself. I have to admit that I'd postponed making this recipe for a long time. I ask myself how I could make something so beautiful and delicious. Finally, I made it, and it's not as hard as my crazy brain has thought.
The peanut sauce recipe on Healthy Thai Recipes requires only seven ingredients which are light coconut milk, creamy peanut butter, red curry paste, light brown sugar, salt, and water. There are only two steps to make the sauce. First, you heat a pot on medium-low. Then you combine all the ingredients into the pot. At first, the peanut sauce is very liquid, but don't let the first look scare you. Keep simmering and stirring the sauce for 10 minutes. Make sure you don't let the sauce burn at the bottom, keep stirring it. Turn off the stove and let the sauce cool down before you serve it. The sauce will be thicker when it cools off.
Serve peanut sauce immediately or keep it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
