First make the beef or chicken skewers, then put together the delicious peanut sauce.  This recipe has many ingredients, but is easy to put together with a blender, and well worth the effort!


1 kg beef or chicken 
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground fennel
2 teaspoons ground cumin
360 gm small red onions 
5 stalks lemongrass
3 thin slices galangal
5 cm ginger
⅓ cup Gula Melts Coconut Nectar
1 dessertspoon ground turmeric
salt to taste
For basting the skewers while grilling ½ cup coconut milk ½ cup oil


Cut meat into 1-2 inch cubes.  Grind all the dry ingredients to a smooth paste, and mix with the Gula Melts Coconut Nectar.  Season to taste.  Use the ground paste to marinate the meat for at least one hour. Skewer the meat cubes with a bamboo stick (wet the sticks to prevent them from burning) and grill over BBQ.  Baste frequently with the coconut milk/oil mixture until meat is cooked.
