Satay



1-1.5lb boneless and skinless chicken breast (cubed & thinly sliced abt an inch sq)

6in ginger
10 shallot
10 cloves garlic
1/2 medium size onion
1/4-1/3 cup cardamom seeds
4-5 sticks lemongrass
1/4 cup sugar
1.5 tblspoon salt
2 tblspoon honey
4 tablspoon vege oil
2-3 tblspoon turmeric powder

Wooden skewer



1. Blend all the ingredients well and marinate the chicken for at least overnight.
2. Thread 3-4 pieces of chicken on each skewer
3. Start grilling

Note :

1. Soak the wooden skewer for about 20-30min before using.

2. When grilling, keep basting each side with a mix of oil and honey using the end of a lemongrass stalk. Just pound the end a little bit to get that 'brush' look.

3. The best way to grill satay is of course to use the charcoal grill. Nothing beats that. But if you're like me where charcoal grilling is considered an 'open-buring' thus deemed unsafe, electric or gas grill is the next best thing.

4. Use medium heat when grilling or else you will get uncooked meat in the middle.

hey there, will try to make satay, was wondering - do i also blend the lemongrass and honey with the other ingredients too? Or do i use those later when i grill the satay?
Sorry i am such an idiot at cooking, hope u can clarify, thx! Hugs for a gd weekend - Mush

Salt & Turmeric said...

Mush, u can blend the honey together or after. it doesn matter. just give it a taste after u blend them and tambah whcever yg u rasa kurang. lemongrass tu blend sekali and keep 1 for grilling. no need to apologise. u shud ask gert how many times i call her when i cook something fr her blog. lol.

Tonight I marinated some chicken satay for tomorrow. A friend gave me some galangal powder, so I put in a bit of it, too. I have the handheld Stabmixer pulverizer, so I put in 4 tbs coconut milk (instead of veggie oil) just to help the blades to move. Sure hope it's sweet and salty enough. :) Thanks for the recipe!
