The weather outside is just horrendous.
A couple of days ago, we suffered rainfall of epic proportions and a gale force wind of up to 70mph.
Ever since then the weather has been quite gloomy and wet.
What am I to do; can't really go out into the garden just yet although it needed a massive amount of clearing-up. Not looking forward to it!
There's not much to do in the house in terms of cleaning; somehow I always managed to keep on top of most things, don't ask how, I just do.
Anyhoo, since I have the time (not necessarily the patience) I embarked on a mission to transform 5kg of pure chicken thighs into satay. It's a labour of love...
I'm using a recipe I found in the net using very little ingredients that are easily found in any supermarket.
Thank you Puan Fauziah Samad for sharing your family's satay recipe. They're easy enough even for me.
All you need for the marinade are turmeric powder, pounded roasted peanuts, lemongrass, salt and sugar.
And for the Peanut Sauce, you'll need
Roasted peanuts, processed till fine
Finely chopped onions
Dried chillies, reconstituted in some hot water and processed till fine
salt and oil
