35. Indonesia – Sate Siap Sate Lilit Ayam (Chicken Satay on Bamboo Sticks)

Here’s another dish using the basic yellow sauce. See – it might be a bit of a faff making it, but there are a myriad of uses for it!

This recipe is for delicious chicken satay on bamboo sticks. At the class we cooked them the traditional Indonesian way – over a charcoal brazier, but they would be just as good on the barbeque!

Sate Siap Sate Lilit Ayam (Chicken Satay on Bamboo Sticks)

Approximately 15 serves

1/2 kilo minced chicken breast
1/2 cup grated fresh coconut (or if frozen, add 1 tablespoon of coconut cream)
2 tablespoons of base gede , basic yellow sauce
1 tablespoon palm sugar
1 wedge lime
1 tablespoon deep fried shallots
salt and pepper to taste

15 bamboo sticks – thicker than skewers or ice-cream sticks

1. Add the minced chicken, base gede, coconut, palm sugar, fried shallots, salt and pepper into a bowl and squeeze the lime over the mixture before mixing thoroughly.

2. Take one tablespoon of the mixture and form a bal. Mould the ball onto the end of a bamboo stick. Repeat the process to make fifteen sticks.

3. Grill the sticks over charcoal or a hot-plate until the meat browns then serve as an appetizer or as a main course with steamed rice.
