  • In a blender or food processor, grind the roasted peanuts until they form a smooth paste. Set aside.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic, chopped shallot, and minced lemongrass. Sauté until fragrant and lightly golden.
  • Add the ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, and chili powder to the saucepan. Stir well to combine and cook for a minute to release the flavors.
  • Pour in the coconut milk and stir until well combined with the spices. Simmer gently for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • Add the ground peanuts to the saucepan and mix well. Stir in the tamarind paste, palm sugar, and soy sauce. Season with salt to taste.
  • Continue to cook the sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, for another 5-10 minutes until the flavors have developed and the sauce has thickened. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a little water to achieve the desired consistency.
  • Once the sauce reaches a smooth and creamy texture, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Transfer the Satay Sauce to a serving bowl or container. It can be served warm or at room temperature.

The sauce is typically served with grilled or skewered meat, such as chicken or beef satay. It can also be used as a dip for vegetables, tofu, or as a dressing for salads.
