Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

SATAY PEANUT SAUCE:

  • 1Tb peanut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, finely sliced, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tsp KEEN’s Curry Powder
  • 2 Tb crunchy peanut butter
  • 1Tb kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy)
  • 2tsp tamarind paste
  • 180ml coconut milk
  • 4 x medium potatoes, skin on, diced into 1.5cm squares
  • 600ml sunflower oil for frying
  • 150g green beans, trimmed
  • 4 x free range eggs
  • 2 cups white cabbage, finely sliced
  • 2 x vine tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 150g bean sprouts
  • Asian fried shallots to serve

METHOD:

  • For the peanut sauce, heat the oil over a medium heat in a small pot. Cook the garlic and chilli for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add in the KEEN’s Curry Powder and continue to cook for 1 minute. Add in the peanut butter, kecap manis, tamarind and coconut milk. Stir well to combine. Bring up to a very gentle simmer and leave to reduce 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Heat the sunflower oil in a medium sized pan over a medium heat. When the oil reached 170 degrees, carefully slide in the potatoes and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through and golden. Drain on kitchen paper.
  • Meanwhile blanch the green beans in a pot of salted boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove the beans with tongs and set aside. In the same pot of boiling water, cook the eggs for 8 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Remove the eggs and place into a bowl of chilled water, peel and slice.
  • To serve, place the cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, bean sprouts, green beans, eggs and fried potatoes onto a large serving platter. Pour over the satay dressing and garnish with Asian fried shallots and extra sliced red chili.
