Surinamese spicy peanut sauce
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
ginger, 1 inch cube, finely chopped.
peanut butter, about 200 grams
tomato paste, small can
soy sauce, 2 tablespoons
oil, 2 tablespoons
vinegar, 1 tablespoon
chilli paste (sambal), 1 tablespoon
cilantro, 1 tablespoon, finely chopped
milk or water
salt to taste
Heat oil softly in a small pan (preferably thick-bottomed or teflon coated). Add the garlic, chilli paste and ginger and heat at a low fire.
Then throw in the peanut butter. Once it has melted in the heat add the tomato paste and mix well. To create a thinner sauce add milk or water to taste, while stirring. Finally add the soy sauce, vinegar and the cilantro. Add salt to taste.
The sauce is done when it becomes a bit grainy and the oil starts floating to the top.
