    Serves: 8 

    • 300ml water
    • 3 tablespoons smooth full fat peanut butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable stock powder (reduced salt)
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
    • 2 to 3 teaspoons caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon sambal (chilli paste)
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric

    1. Bring the water to the boil and add all of the ingredients. Stir till the peanut butter has melted then turn the heat down and cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes, do not boil. Remove from the heat and enjoy.


    These are all herbs and spices I have in my cupboard permanently, but feel free to substitute them with the real deal, this is just a quick and easy way to make satay sauce. The sweet soy sauce is a crucial ingredient though! Normal soy sauce will not make this taste the same. Luckily most supermarkets sell this in their foreign speciality section these days. You might need to add a bit more water or a bit more peanut butter to thicken or thin it to your liking, it depends a little on which brand peanut butter you use as well, same with the sugar.
