Peanut Sauce

After a few years and many failed tries and trying to make this yummy dipping sauce I happened to be in the right place at the right time. We usually bought our peanut sauce from a Thai restaurant and the lady that made it (would never share the recipe) would always call Steve "Mr. Peanut Sauce" cause we were there a lot just for the sauce. I'm so happy to share it all with you.

2 Tablespoons Tamarind Liquid
4-5 Tbs. Chunky Peanut butter
1-2 Tbs. Red curry paste
6 Tbs. Sugar
4 Tbs. Fish sauce
1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk
1- In saucepan add coconut milk & heat it up at Medium heat.
2- Stir in curry paste & break into small pieces and mix well.
3- When you see red oil simmering to the top, add peanut butter, sugar, fish sauce, and tamarind liquid.
4- Stir.
** Add water if to thick, few tsp.
Needs to be Salty sweet and Sour
We use this to dip our Sticky rice and Chicken Satay!! YUM!
