Step 1

Marinate the sliced meat with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of mild curry powder, half a teaspoon of garlic and half a teaspoon of ginger powder. Rest for 10 minutes. Push the meat slices on the skewers (3 per skewer works best). Heat two tablespoons of cooking oil in a frying pan and cook evenly on each side (normally 2-3 minutes each side)

Step 2

To prepare the sauce...
Add the garlic, chilli, onion and shrimps to a blender and blend until very fine.
Heat two tablespoons of cooking oil in a wok to a medium heat and add the blended ingredients and fry for 3 minutes on low heat (important to keep stirring!)
Add 200ml of water and bring to the boil. Add one and a half tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Keep stirring over low heat until thickened.
Serve skewers with sauce on the side and enjoy!


To make a veggie option, use beancurd in place of the meat and don't put the shrimps in the sauce - you can add some breadcrumbs in place of the shrimp to help thicken the sauce.
