Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil*
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts roasted and chopped
Directions
  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add the curry and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  2. Add everything else and simmer to thicken it a bit, about 2-3 minutes.

Note: Instead of using peanut oil, use the thicker coconut 'cream' from the top of the can of coconut milk.

Note: Use enough coconut milk to get the sauce to the desire consistency; 1/2 cup is perfect for a thicker dipping sauce and 1 cup is good for a thinner more dressing like sauce.
