How to Make Nam Jim Satay

Detailed Step-by-step Method:

Step 1

Divide the coconut milk into 2 one cup portions and measure the other ingredients so they are ready to start cooking. Chop the peanuts into a rough texture or grind them a little. You do not want them to be too fine.

Step 2

In a small frying pan or wok, heat 1 cup of coconut milk until it boils, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes to reduce the water content. When ready, you will see that a lot of the oil from the milk has separated from the white solids. Add the curry paste.
