A run down
Short on time well this simple Thai style sauce i make is as easy and as quick as it can be. We use it a Thai stir fry sauce but even a great base sauce for for many a oriental dish’s. And it really is so simple.
We use a hand blender which has a chopping bowl attachment on it (seen in pictures) but any normal household blender or food processor will be fine.
I always try to make the night before and leave it in the fridge allowing the aromatic flavours of some of these ingredients to infuse Overnight. Its ok to hold for 4 -5 days and we often would do 2 different dishes throughout the week with it.
Top Tip 1: Play around with the spice i use birds eye chilis which are hot and fragrant ( I love the spice) but a long red mild chili maybe be better to start with, if you not to familiar with spice.
Top Tip 2 : The recipe calls for the juice of 1 lime when extracting juice cut lime in half and gentle heat in a bowl in a microwave for 30 seconds. The heat will release the natural juices even more making it easier to extract
So here it is our simple Thai style sauce
- 1 Red Chili (your choice spice)
- Dried Lemongrass
- Dried Lime Leaves
- Sesame oil
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 tin Coconut milk
- Peanut Butter
- First is to make the paste. In a blender, blend chilli, ginger, coriander, dried lemongrass, dried lime leaves, garlic and sesame. until paste.
- Empty tin of coconut milk and peanut butter into blender and blend again.
- Add the juice of one lime
And there you have it a simple and quick Thai sauce great as a Thai stir fry sauce or a substitute to a pad Thai sauce.
