Pindasaus (Dutch peanut/satay sauce)

Fancy a typical Dutch pindasaus (peanut/satay sauce) to go with your Dutch chips or Dutch-Indonesian meal? Then, rustle it yourself using this incredibly yummy and easy-to-follow recipe!


200 g of Calvé Peanut Butter
3 tbsp. of ketjap manis
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
1 tbsp. of lemon juice
1 tbsp. of brown sugar
1 tsp. of ground ginger
1-2 tsp. of sambal oelek

Dutch recipe for pindasaus


First heat a little wok oil or sunflower oil in a non-stick pan and briefly fry the crushed garlic. Next add in the lemon juice, ketjap manis, ginger, brown sugar and sambal, and bring to the boil. Now stir in the peanut butter and mix into a creamy sauce. Allow the sauce to gently simmer on a low heat before serving immediately with ‘patatje met saté’ or ‘patatje oorlog’ (chips, Dutch style) or your favourite Dutch-Indonesian dishes, including chicken satay and ‘gado-gado’. Alternatively use as a tempting sauce over your choice of meat dishes.
