Chicken on a skewer a.k.a. Satay Ayam

I cheated. I know and im quite ashamed of it but hey! We live in an apartment and the only grill that we have is the electric grill, a x'mas gift from my in laws.

I use minimum ingredients to marinate the chicken. Ginger, shallot, onion, cardamom seeds, lemongrass, salt, sugar, honey and vege oil and tumeric powder. OK. Maybe not minimum but it did sound minimum when I was making them. :P
Just blend all the ingredients and marinate for at least 20hrs. You can do it in lesser time but I like to taste all the ingredients in the meat when i eat them thus the lonnnnngggg marinating time.
Shirley i.e. Meltingwok told me tht I can simply grill them on the electril grill that we have. Just dont forget to keep lathering them with oil and honey. Ialso made the ketupat and peanut sauce (not in pic).

Farina,
You can also used Lee Kum Kee curry paste as marinate... Rasa-nya lebih kurang macam satay juga... Sedaaaaap. Tak yah susah2 nak blend all the ingredients...

Mintak cikit satay tu leh?

oooo sedapnya Farina. Dah lama tak rasa satay even when I went home last year. I tak pandai buat the kuah kacanglah. Farina ada recipe tak?

Farina, lama betul you marinate.Tak kecut daging you?..hey masak atas electric grill is not bad dari open flame. Janji dapat makan satay. It looks good though.

It sounds like everyone has their own style of making satay. Me? I wait once a year to go home and eat it. Malas lah... to put all those ingredients together. If really cannot tahan when I am craving for it, I will visit Princess Farina's blog for the recipe. :)
