Satay sauce or sometimes known as peanut sauce, (in Malay = bumbu kacang or sambal kacang) is a chilli-based peanut sauce.
There are a lot of ways you can enjoy this sauce. This sauce goes extremely well with meat such as chicken, mutton or beef and even vegetables. In Southeast Asia, particularly in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, we like to dip our grilled skewered meat in it, which is known as satay or sate, to add that extra flavour to the meat. Pour this sauce over vegetables as salad dressing such as in gado-gado, or as a dipping sauce for spring rolls. In the olden days, Teochew Chinese immigrants in Singapore also used this sauce to make Satay Bee Hoon (satay sauce over rice vermicelli).
