Peanut Sauce Coated Paneer Satay

4 from 1 vote

Peanut sauce coated paneer satay is inspired by Thai cuisine where peanuts are used in many of their foods. Satay is any food or portion of food that is skewered and grilled along with various condiments and sauces. Here I have used the peanut sauce to cover the paneer to prepare the delectable paneer satay. Thin metal or bamboo skewers (also called satay sticks) are used to hold the food that are to be grilled. After grilling the peanut sauce coated paneer I served them in toothpicks. This makes an interesting toothpick appetizer or starter that the guests will just love to pick and eat. I made the peanut sauce at home and will be giving the recipe for the sauce too over here.
