Today I learned how to make "sate" very similar to what we would call a shish kabob (what a weird name). A friend took me step by step through the process...although I have to admit I missed out on the going to the market and buying the chicken part. I am just not quite brave enough for that yet :/
The point is that in our 8 months of living here we have eaten this meal many times. It is something the people eat on a regular basis and also something that they tend of have a big events. So we know it is culturally fitting.
"the woman is peeling the onion"
smashing up all the spices by hand
now time to cook the chicken...
the meat is cooked one time and then remarinated and then cooked again
quite the process!
and then we get to enjoy with rice and a peanut sauce...I also learned to make the peanut sauce but Ill save that for another time!
Craig enjoyed it! This is one of our kids favorite meals!
