This is our breakfast today: Chicken Satay, Nasi Himpit (pressed rice), Peanut sauce, cucumber & onion.
I made two versions of satay, grilled Satay with sticks (above) & fried Satay without sticks (below).
After comparing several versions of recipes from Hana, Kak Ina, MyR(Jun), here what I came up with. Thanks to all for being inspirational.
