·      4-5 garlic cloves

·      1 big red chili padi (thick red chili fresh)

·      2 candle nut or Indian walnut

·      Now mix the powdered peanut and this paste in pan with 1 tbsp oil (on low flame) together and add brown sugar/gula melaka, water (2-3 spoon) and coconut milk. The paste should become smooth. Add salt to it as well and pour in a bowl after it comes to a good boil (test of which is a layer of oil starts to separate, coming from peanut)

·      Baste the skewers after 2 min is over after opening the lid and flip them over for another 2 minutes

·      Satay is ready when the meter prompts end! Serve hot with peanut sauce and garnished with salad slices as shown
