Gado Gado with Peanut Sauce

My Gado Gado is a selection of warm blanched vegetables  and salads served with a delicious peanut sauce and topped with a hard boiled egg. You can choose to purchase a ready made sataty sauce or very simply make your own.


Gado Gado with Peanut Sauce

  • Blanch or steam a selection of vegetables I have used snow peas, sweet potato, pumpkin, cabbage and cauliflower... these should still have a little crunch to the bite.
  • Display these seperately on the serving plate and add a layer of satay sauce.
  • Top this with your selection of salads I have used tomatoes, capsicum and cucumber.
  • Top with some more warm satay sauce.
  • Finally add a hard boiled egg and shredded corriander.


Simple Peanut Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan soften some diced onion, chilli and garlic in a little peanut oil until the onion is translucent. 
  • Add about 200 grams of unsalted peanuts to toast.
  • When golden brown whiz up into a paste in your food processor.
  • Return to the saucepan and add a can of coconut milk a dash of fish sauce, the juice of a lime, a splosh of ketjap manus and a couple of tablespoons of palm sugar. 
  • Simmer gently until the sauce reduces and thickens ... delicious home made sauce however if you decide to buy one please choose a quality authentic sauce as it is a very large part of the success of this dish.
