As I promised, I am publishing the peanut sauce recipe as a single post.
Sweet, sour, salty, earthy, nutty, zesty, creamy, spicy and crunchy (if you want) – all these umami flavors and delightful textures can be found in the sauce-dip.
Like it more hot? Not a problem, just add more hot chili paste. Out of chili paste? Red pepper flakes, Sriracha sauce or other hot sauce will do the job.
Enjoy some crunchiness? Fine, top the sauce-dip with roasted chopped peanuts or sesame seeds. Not sweet enough? It is easy, a little more honey will help. Allergic to honey? Simply replace it with cane sugar.
So, this is quite simple, as well as quite delicious.
Combine all the ingredients. Taste and adjust sweetness, saltiness and spiciness with honey, vinegar, chili paste, and salt.
For the peanut dip, add 3 tbsp of water.
For the peanut sauce, add 5 tbsp of water.
The quantity of Sambal Oelek chili paste and honey depends on a personal taste, how spicy and sweet you like the sauce.
Optionally, top the dip or sauce with roasted chopped peanuts or sesame seeds.
Cook with pleasure and enjoy the world!
