  1. Take a bowl and mix all the Satay seasoning ingredients together so it mixes well.

  3. Take a skillet and add 1 tablespoon of oil and heat it on high flame. Add chicken pieces into it and fry and toss from all the sides until it turns light golden in color. For a better result do this process on very low flame. Now, shift the fried chicken to a bowl.

  4. Use the same skillet and heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium flame. Add onion, chilli and garlic cloves and fry it for 2-3 minutes until the onions become translucent or golden in color.

Recipe Notes

This recipe desperately seeks ground red chilli of type you have available. Mind you, American red chilli is not a pure type of ground red chilli. Instead of that, use cayenne pepper.

While using chilli make sure how much spicy you can really eat. I suggest 6 birds eye of chilli is sufficient to do the magic of ground red chilli in this recipe.

Many of you might not aware with the Kecap Manis or Ketjap Manis is a deep dark soy sauce that you can purchase from any super markets near to you. This is also known as Coles or even you can make it on your own.

The lemon grass and peanuts are the real secret key ingredients of this super tasty recipe that enhance the taste.

The marination process is compulsory for this recipe but if you don't have much time then at least marinate for 30 minutes while you prepare everything else. However, overnight marination can do wonder, you know.
