Easy Peanut Sauce - A Keeper!

Salt N Turmeric posts such good recipes! I like very much her mom's extremely simple and scrumptious peanut sauce recipe. Do check out her blog.

Hmm... I think I am going to make some gado gado next!

Now, if only somebody could post a simple/easy/shortcut recipe for ketupat from scratch... Do note that instant and prepacked ones are not available here, neither are the leaves for weaving ketupat casings. Thanks in advance!

Talking about ingredients/food which are unavailable here: these are typically ingredients peculiar to malaysia and singapore, such as candlenuts, instant ketupat, instant roti prata, ginger flower, sweet black soya sauce and delimas premixes, to name but a few. Thank goodness I am able to get chinese and "indo-chine" ingredients without problems, thanks to the small chinese, thai, vietnamese and burmese populations here. There just aren't any Indonesians, Malaysians and Singaporeans in my part of the world! I really ought to remember to bring some of these stuff back next time.

When you are in Paris next time, remember to do some shopping in China town. They have practically everything you might need. U can buy lots of lemon grass for cheap and freeze it, same with galangal, pandan leaves and laska leaves. If you don't have candle nuts, use peanuts or cashew nuts to replace it.

Ange, im glad you liked the recipe. Tht's what I want my foodblog to be i.e. with easy to make Malaysian recipes without changing the taste.

Iv heard of ppl making nasi impit by boiling the rice and then practically 'pressing' them to make it packed. Me? Thank god i found instant ketupat. If not, die lor. lol. Hope you'l find the instant ketupat soon or at least the DIY recipe.
