Nam Jim satay

Satay sauce
makes 2 cups

While some satay sauce use peanut butter as a base, this one authentically uses roasted peanuts and a hint of curry paste for hotness. Tamarind juice, coconut milk and cream, and other aromatic Thai and Indian seasonings add to its complex but mellow exoticness. When grinding the peanuts, be sure not to overprocess tham or you will end up with peanut butter.
In a food grinder, process garlic, galangal, lemon grass, peppers, chilies, and shrimp paste until smooth.

In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot but not smoking. Add mixture and stir fry 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add coconut milk and brink to boil. Add peanuts and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add sugar, salt, and water bring to boil.

Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, stirring constantly, 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Strain tamarind pulp, reserving juice. Add tamarind juice, nam pla, coriander, curry powder and curry paste to the skillet and bring to boil over medium heat. Simmer, uncovered, stirring constantly, 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigirator for 3 to 4 days before serving.
