“This is a great satay sauce. We have used it many times on prawn or chicken skewers. Can be made to suit a gluten free diet by using GF ingredients. A great sauce to serve with BBQ chicken or beef skewers. This recipe is made using Australian cup measurements. Updated from review- Please add extra stock if your sauce becomes too thick. Recipe from Cooking Chinese WW”
