Homemade Satay and Peanut Sauce Recipe

“Simple ingredients, for a good enough hawker treat at home.”

Satay, barbecued chicken on-stick, is one of the famous Singapore/ Malaysia hawker food that everybody loves!

I have always wanted to cook satay at home, but the extended peeling & chopping, blending and long simmering preparation put me off. Only until today, my satays are finally served on the dining table. It was simply for my son. He loved satay, but I was a little skeptical to let my 2.5yo son have much of the stall bought satays. No choice, hubby pressed me to cook it for son. I have to do it. :)
