Satay or sate is a popular Southeast Asian dish that consists of skewered and grilled meat, typically served with peanut sauce. The dish originated in Indonesia but has since spread to other countries in the region, such as Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
The meat used for satay can vary but is typically chicken, beef, or mutton. The meat is cut into small cubes or thin slices, marinated in a mixture of spices and seasonings, and then skewered onto bamboo sticks. The skewers are then grilled or barbecued over an open flame until cooked through and slightly charred.
Satay is often served with a dipping sauce made from ground peanuts, coconut milk, and various spices such as chilli, garlic, and lemongrass. The sauce is usually sweet and slightly spicy and is used to add flavour and moisture to the grilled meat.
