Hot and spicy peanut sauce is a standard condiment in Indonesia. This sauce is not only used with satays but as a basis for unusual curries and as a dipping sauce. It is traditionally prepared by pounding peanuts into a paste before using. We have simplified the recipe by substituting crunchy peanut butter. Want more hot peanut butter action?
