1/2 small onion minced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 T ginger root grated
- 2 T lemon juice (1 oz or 30 mls)----I used 5 calamansi/lemonsito
- 1 T soy sauce (0.5 oz or 15 mls)
- 1 tsp ground coriander (5 mls)
- 1 tsp ground cumin (5 mls)
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric -----I don't have this, I used 1 tsp Achuete instead
- 2 T vegetable oil (or peanut or olive oil) (30 mls) 1/2 kilo/pound of meat cut in 1 inch strips ----I used chicken breast
- 1 tsp of salt ---not included in the original recipe, just added some, I feel like the soy didn't provide that much saltiness =) OK, fine I am a salt-y person! =)
1a. Cheater alert: If you have a food processor or blender, dump in everything except the meat and blend until smooth.
- 3/4 cup coconut milk (6 oz or 180 mls)
- 4 Tbsp peanut butter (2 oz or 60 mls)---I used Ladies Choice Sweet crunchy peanut butter- one with bits of peanuts for texture
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice (0.5 oz or 15 mls)
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce (0.5 oz or 15 mls)
- 1 tsp brown sugar (5 mls)---I didn't add this one as the peanut butter is sweet already but if you are going to use the peanut butter for cooking (without sugar) then add this.
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin (2.5 mls)
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander (2.5 mls)
- 1-2 dried red chilies, chopped (keep the seeds for heat)
Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl.
Add soy sauce and lemon, mix well.
Over low heat, combine coconut milk, peanut butter and your soy-lemon-seasoning mix. Stir often. When the peanut butter is melted, then it's done. Reheat if necessary.
Cooking Directions : 2 Methods
- Pan fry on medium-high for 3minutes on each side until it turns golden brown. - I opted for this method.
Make sure that your oil is not so hot and take off the bits of spices outside the meat to prevent from burning since the spices tend to cook faster than the meat. Don't worry, you still have those bits inside the rolled chicken strips.
- Grill or Broil at 290C/550F--brush once with extra marinade when you flip the skewer.
Serve with the peanut sauce and have fun eating!
My sous chef was contantly bugging me the whole time, could not even concentrate on what I was doing. But obviously he is my sous chef/taste tester so I couldn't get rid of him and his verdict? He said "Lamia ani Mommie oi!" which means "This is yummy Mommie!" =)weeee
