How to Make Real Peanut Sauce


  1. Put peanuts in food processor or blender. Pulse until nuts are ground to preferred consistency; coarsely ground if you prefer a chunkier sauce or more finely ground for a smoother sauce. Add all other ingredients to the food processor or blender and blend to create a delicious peanut sauce. If you prefer a runnier sauce, add a little more water or coconut milk. Serve with chicken or pork satay, on dumplings or as a dip for fresh vegetables.
