Peanut Sauce


Peanut Sauce
A sweet & tangy thai sauce, the peanut sauce is the go-to thai accompaniment in the south eastern country. Usually paired with Chicken Satay, it not only nourishes the flavours of the skewer-chicken dish but also adds to it. Again, made with basic thai ingredients, this sauce is a must when you are planning a Thai night at home.
 Not only used with Chicken Satay, you can also use this sauce as a dressing over Thai Salads, and on the sides with all Thai mains. A great side with Burmese food as well.
