This is quite possibly the best sauce ever invented for barbecued foods!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 lemongrass stem, chopped, white part only
2 teaspoons chilli powder
2 tablespoons oil
320g roasted peanuts, ground in a food processor
400 ml can coconut milk
1 tablespoon tamarind paste
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
salt, to taste

Method

  1. Purée the onion, lemongrass and chilli powder together in a food processor to a fine paste.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the purée for about 5 minutes, until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the roasted ground peanuts, coconut milk, tamarind paste and sugar, and bring the boil.
  4. Simmer until the sauce is thick and season with salt.
  5. Serve warm. You can keep the remaining sauce in the refrigerator for at least two weeks – it wll set firm but reheats well, just add a little water to avoid splitting.
