After worshiping and staying in touch with relatives, another thing that is always eagerly awaited during Eid al-Adha is the time to eat sacrificial meat. Sacrificial meats such as mutton and beef are often processed into satay during Eid al-Adha. As a typical Indonesian food, satay can be found in almost all corners of the archipelago. Of course, each region has a different type of satay, adjusted to what is typical of the area.
Whatever meat is used, what actually distinguishes one satay from another is the satay seasoning used. The most common is usually peanut sauce and soy sauce, although there are also satay that use curry spices like sate padang. What will be discussed this time is the difference between the satay spices that use peanuts and soy sauce, which one is better, the more delicious?
Peanut Satay Seasoning is a seasoned sauce made from fried peanuts which is ground and ground. The ingredients that are usually used to make peanut spices are fried peanuts, Javanese sugar, garlic, onion, ginger, tamarind, lime juice, lemongrass, chili, chili, pepper and sweet soy sauce. All of these ingredients are then mixed with boiled water, stirred to achieve the right texture and viscosity. Good bean spices are not too thick and not too runny.
Some satay that uses peanut sauce include chicken satay, mushroom satay, sate blora, and others. During Eid al-Adha, using peanut sauce as a complement to satay is already familiar, because it is very easy to process it and serve it with mutton or beef satay. Peanut condiments are also commonly used in other foods, not just satay spices, for example to supplement gado-gado and ketoprak.
Another variation of satay seasoning is soy sauce. Soy sauce is simpler than peanut spices, which only uses sweet soy sauce with pieces of red onion and cucumber, sometimes with lime juice. But the taste is not inferior to peanut spices. The types of satay that use soy sauce include sate madura, satay ponorogo, satay tegal, satay buntel, and many more.
Whether using peanut sauce or soy sauce, satay is still an unforgettable Indonesian specialty. Come on, create your own satay with the selected ingredients to make it more delicious.
