Grilled Chicken Satay

Perfect as a snack, starter or main course, the Satay is the trifecta of dishes. Pieces of juicy meat –beef, chicken, mutton or pork –skewered on a stick and, traditionally, grilled over charcoal, paired with a thick sauce where the peanut and an array of spices take centre stage. To complete the dish, add some slices of raw shallots, cucumber and ketupat, which is compressed sticky rice steamed in woven palm leaves.
