Satay is considered one of the popular eateries in Singapore. Originated from Indonesia, satay is basically a dish of grilled marinated meat (chicken, beef or mutton) served with spicy peanut sauce. This dish is usually accompanied with cucumber cubes, ketupat (rice cakes) and some onion slices. Before I became vegetarian, my favourite used to be mutton satay. Mutton tends to have a stronger flavour but with the marinated spices, it covers up the 'mutton-y' smell or flavour (plus there's the peanut sauce, too.) 


Anyway, finding vegetarian satay is a challenge (well, some vegetarian food stalls do have them but not all) so I was thrilled to find packets of frozen vegetarian satay in a supermarket. And, it comes with a sauce dip too. While I don't have a griller, I found frying is another great alternative, too. (Just make sure the oil doesn't cover those sticks. And yes, they taste equally yummy!)

    I love satay, but I can't eat peanuts anymore. Fortunately I have found that Sunbutter makes a good substitute, so I've been experimenting with making my own sauce.

    There used to be a restaurant here in my town that was called Satay. Those look really good and sound tasty. I'm reading about the most interesting foods on Weekend Cooking.

    Diane - I've yet to read that book and it has piqued my interest. It's always interesting to read a book that's set in your own country. ;)
