Spicy peanut sauce.
- 6- 7 Tbsp peanut butter smooth or chunky
- 3 Large red bell peppers
- 2 medium plum tomatoes
- 3 habanero peppers use 1 for a mild sauce
- 1 cup of cooking oil
- 1 medium onion. divide into two, chop one half finely and the other half for blending.
- 3 cloves garlic
- Small thumb of fresh ginger
- Salt/ bullion powder to taste
- ¼ tsp curry powder Optional
- Wash all ingredients and cut up for blending.
- Place in the blender, blend with half cup of cooking oil till smooth ( don’t add water)
- Heat up the other half cup of oil and sauté the onions till fragrant.
- Pour in the puréed mix from the blender. Cook till sauce thickens and some oil floats on top. Most of the liquid would have been absorbed.
- Stir the peanut butter into the pot. Allow cook for about a minute with continuous stirring to prevent burning.
- Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for later
- If you intend to use fresh roasted groundnuts, you will have to use a food processor to get it into a paste form first. ¾ cup roasted groundnuts is equivalent to ½ cup peanut butter or 8 Tbsp.
- Blend your tomatoes and peppers with part of the oil to reduce the amount of liquid in the mix. this will reduce cooking time too.
