  • sugar

For the satay sauce (makes 250 ml)

  • 1 medium red red chilli

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 150 ml coconut milk

Tips and suggestions

This sauce doesn’t keep too well, as it tends to set when it cools and will separate if reheated. It tastes so great, there probably won’t be any left over anyway.
