Peanut Dip
Classic peanut dip made with Thai curry paste is an essential accompaniment with chicken satay and other meats / salads. Works great as a tapas on pita bread slices too.


Step 1

Heat the oil in a deep pan to medium heat. Stir in the Massaman curry paste and red curry paste in the oil until fragrant.

Step 2

Add the coconut cream to the mix, stir and continue to heat until the fat separates (you will see the oil floating on the top).

Step 3

Add the sugar, fish sauce and tamarind pulp. Stir for a minute. Add the coconut milk and peanuts.

Step 4

Stir on low heat and reduce the sauce to a nice thick texture mix. Serve with Chicken satay.

My Notes
1. You can experiment with adding more red curry paste or finely crushed bird’s eye chillies if you desire to make the peanut dip spicy.
