Satay Sauce - no coconut milk

muffin2, Aug 13, 10:40pm
last year I found a great satay sauce recipe online that used no coconut milk, it had peanut butter, brown sugar I think with some chilli / onion in it?and you mixed up 1/2 cup water with cornflour to thicken it up. but I can't find the recipe anywhere now and want to make it tonight.
Does anyone have a good satay sauce recipe - preferable one without coconut milk

thanks in advance

Malaysian Satay Peanut Sauce

1 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts (unsalted)

1 cup water
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce (Kecap Manis)

1 1/2 tablespoon palm sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup peanut oil

1 heaped tab tamarind pulp (soaked in 1/4 cup water for 15 minutes, squeeze the tamarind pulp for juice and discard the pulp)

Spice Paste:
6-8 dried red chilies (seeded and soaked in warm water)

3 cloves garlic

3 shallots

2 lemon grass stalks (white parts only)

3cm ginger or galangal 

1 tablespoon coriander powder (optional)

Crush the peanuts coarsely with mortar and pestle or mini food processor and set aside.
Chop the spice paste ingredients and blend until fine. Heat oil and fry the spice paste until aromatic and smell spicy. Add the peanuts, tamarind juice, water, sugar, sweet soy sauce and stir thoroughly. Simmer in low heat while continue stirring for about 3 minutes until the peanut sauce turns smooth. Serve at room temperature with the satay.
