332. Homemade Satay Gravy

I know... I should be posting pictures taken during this 'Hari Raya' but I couldn't resist posting this 'Satay Gravy Recipe' of mine first. It's special because this Satay recipe was 'founded' by hubby and me, through constant practice of course. Constant practice means we both keep on trying and trying to cook a 'Satay Recipe' that suited our taste at last. One that the children would say 'nothing can compare to our dad and mom's Satay gravy' LOL...

And it's also special because this Hari Raya's 'Satay Gravy' hubby had helped me in the kitchen with it :p

Unlike other dishes like 'Chicken Curry' which we cooked in the early morning of Hari Raya, we cooked our Satay gravy one day before, and when cooled I will put it in a container and freezed it. That way, I can save a lot of time to cook other dishes on the eve of Hari Raya.
I will take out the container of Satay gravy the night before Hari Raya so it will thaw and can be heated and eaten the morning of Hari Raya.

So here, I would like to share the recipe with you. You may have a different type or different ingredients in making your Satay gravy.

Try ours if you like :)

Homemade Satay Gravy

Hubby helped too :)

To start off...

Fry 1 kilo peanuts without oil in a frying pan until brown and cooked. Blend and keep aside.

Blend 3 pieces of 1 inch Lengkuas (galangal), 2 inches ginger and 3 lemon grass with a little water, in an electric Mini Food Processor.

Blended lengkuas, ginger and lemon grass

Add a bit more water to it. Sieve and keep the juice to one side.

Add the juice of lengkuas, ginger and lemon grass to your blended peanuts.
Keep aside.

Blend 7 small shallots and 7 garlic with a little water in a food processor

Blended small shallots and garlic

Heat oil in a pot

Add in the blended shallots and garlic

Add 3 tablespoons of blended dried red chillies (according to taste).

Add some cut red meat (optional).

This was how it looked like after adding shallots, garlic, meat and blended red chillies.

Then add in the peanuts gravy to it.

This was how it looked like.

Keep fire at moderate rate at this stage. And keep stirring the gravy as to make sure it does not burn at the bottom.

Stir often until the gravy thicken, the oil from the peanuts comes out and the gravy looks like the first picture above.

Add salt and ajinomoto to taste.

Before signing off, it's 5th day of Hari Raya and bulan Syawal, SALAM AIDIL FITRI MAAF ZAHIR BATIN to all dear Blogger Friends celebrating this wonderful Hari Raya from MAK ISAH.

Keep smiling!

Kuah (wah, wah!) satay tu memang nampak cantik & sedap. Macam jenis halus tu. Sebab ada juga kuah yang nampak kacangnya kasar-kasar. Tak cerita sataynya? Sataynya home-made juga, kan? Seperti di Semenanjung, mungkin biasa juga orang Sarawak makan ketupat atau nasi himpit dengan kuah seperti itu.

Seronoknya buat kerja dengan bantuan hubby. Semoga ceria selalu.

selamat hari raya puan isah.. sedapnya kuah satay tu.. cicah dengan satay and nasi impit plus bawang..

Puan Isah said...

Salam Temuk
Terima kasih :)
Bagi Isah dan famili, kuah satay jenis halus macam ni memang sedap! Tak cerita satay nya sebab anak2 lebih minat makan kuah satay ini dengan 'kelupis'.

Suami bantu bila isah masak kuah satay ni, masakan yang lain - sos ayam, kari ayam, ginger beef, sup taufu dan nasi, anak2 perempuan yang bantu :) Kena bahagi kerja supaya rata, lebih harmoni dan lebih seronok lagi waktu Hari Raya.

Stay safe dan Salam ceria!
