Recipe's preparation

    To Make:
  1. First you need to roast the peanust in the oven for about 15min on 200°c. Measure 150g then spread them out on a banking paper coverd tray. You will know when they are ready, as they turn a nice golden colour and smell wonderful!



  2. Once roasted, tip the hot peanuts into the bowl with the oil and blend for approx 3 min / speed 9 (scrape sides every 30 sec or so)



  3. Place the onion, garlic chilli and curry powder into the bowl and finely chop for about 5 seconds / speed 7.



  4. Cook for 3 min / speed 3 / 100°c



  5. Add remaining ingredients (fish sauce, lemon juice, sugar, coriander leaves and coconut cream) and cook for 5 min / 100°c / speed 3




Tip 1. You can skip the peanut roasting and blending step and just add 150g of peanut butter.


Tip 2. Coriander is optional, and you can substitute it with a small amount of coriander seeds and root if you prefer.


Tip 3. The heat in the blending nuts is what releases the oils in the peanuts and makes them "butter" putting the roated nuts striaght from the oven into the TM bowl, speeds up the process a bit.


Tip 3. No need to remove the husks from the peanuts for this recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

Tip 4. Rapadura sugar is unrefined pure sugarcane juice, it goes by other names like Panela. It tastes like brown sugar, but has the original nutrients still intact. Brown sugar can be used as a substitute if you can't get Rapadura.


Tip 5. A tsp of Tumeric can be added for a more intense colour and some additional health benefits in step 3.


Tip 6. Always try to use coconut cream not milk. If you want milk, just water down the cream (why buy it already watered down tmrc_emoticons.) ) I use Ayam brand in this recipe because it's 100% pure coconut cream.


Tip 7. Satay sauce is quite oily, but you can omit the oil if you want to, you just need to make sure the sauce has enough viscosity to not stick to the bowl. (the end product will still be fairly oily, as peanuts and coconut cream have a high oil content).


Tip 8. If you don't have Korma curry, you can substitute it for another curry powder, I just think Korma goes really well in a satay.

I recommend you try this recipe with the ingredients, and as stated for optimal really fantastic tasting satay sauce, but the substitues still make a yummy Satay. Ofcourse, you can make little variations to suit your own tates too tmrc_emoticons.)

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Yummmm, really tasty, I did add the tumeric and a sprinkle of chilli flakes instead of a chilli (husband doesn't like chilli) I know ......and yet we are still married!

    have added chopped chicken and frozen veg and turning it into little pies. Thanks for my new go to recipe for satay tmrc_emoticons.)
