Chicken Satay
(Sate Ayam)
2 chicken breast
1 Tbls. vegetable oil
Bamboo skewers
2 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. coriander
1/2 inch turmeric
1 tsp. tamarind sauce (1 Tbls. tamarind dissolved in 1 tsp. water)
1 Tbls. palm sugar


Cut the chicken into small cubes and set it aside in a bowl.

Using a mortar and pestle or food processor, blend the garlic, shallots, coriander, turmeric, tamarind sauce, salt and palm sugar to form a paste.

Pour the vegetable oil and the blended ingredients into the bowl filled with chicken breast cubes. Mix them well and set it aside for half an hour so that the chicken will absorb the paste.

Put 4-5 pieces of chicken cubes on each skewer.

Grill the chicken satay on both sides until well done.

Put chicken satay on a plate and pour the peanut sauce and fried shallots on top.

Chicken satay is commonly served with Rice Rolls (Lontong).
