Chicken satay

looking a bit burnt... used my 5 pnd stove grill... not bad turnout better than those i bbq

About 2 whole baby chicken deboned and cut into small cube pieces.

Marinade (combine in a bowl):

1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp chili sauce
1 tsp cumin powder (jintan putih)
1 tsp fennel powder (jintan manis)
1 tbsp ginger juice
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp kicap manis
Salt to taste
1tbsp oil


Mix meat with marinade and allow to stand for more than an hour. Thread meat onto satay sticks or skewers. Skewers should be soak in water for 30 minutes to avoid burning. Grill for 10
minutes using stove griller. Drizzle some oil while cooking it.

Tips: The marinade is actually up to taste... if you do not want it too strong flavour of spice then the amounts should be reduced.

Satay sauce :


8-9 dried chillies, soaked in water
1/4 cup toasted, skinless groundnuts, finely ground ( if u have sainsbury around just grab a pack of salted peanuts n ground it)
1 stalk lemon grass (serai), lightly bruised
2cm piece galangal (lengkuas), lightly crushed
1 tsp belacan granules
1/4 cup tamarind juice
1 cup water
1/4 cup coconut milk ( coconut milk in the can)
Salt to taste
1 tbsp sugar


Heat oil in a saucepan. Add in lemon grass, galangal, chillies and belacan granules. Stir in coconut milk, water and tamarind juice and mix in sugar and salt. Bring to a low boil. Add in groundnuts and allow the sauce to simmer a while. When oil rises to the top, dish out the sauce and serve with satay.

p/s: this was tried n tested.... was pretty good.

in the picture is the lazy version...

Tips: making the sauce is a hassle... get the ready bottled ones... ( i made mine myself cos i was too lazy to make my way to chinatown to get some...)

Lazy way to make: sambal paste+coconut milk+tamarind juice+grounded peanuts+ water + salt+sugar.... slow boil till oil rises. Voila! done....! taste? a bit compromised... but still OK.

YUM YUM... 5pnd grill worthed... gonna use it to make SATAY!!!
Most of the ingredients can be found in any Asian grocery stores(spices), others i bought it from chinatown...
