Peanut sauce, satay sauce, or kacang sambal is a sauce widely used in Indonesian cuisine, Malaysian cuisine, Thai cuisine, and Chinese cuisine. The main ingredient is a roasted peanut-based paste such as peanut butter, which together with soy sauce gives it a nutty and salty taste. Several different recipes for making peanut sauces exist, resulting in a variety of flavours. A typical recipe usually contains peanut butter(smooth or crunchy), coconut milk, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and spices (such as coriander seed, cumin, etc). Other ingredients may also contain chili peppers, milk, fried onions, sesame seed, olive oil or peanuts.
