The first time I heard about satay/sate (as it is known in Indonesia, Malaysia), was when I was working for my Asian food based client in Australia back in 2014. Of course Satay is a dish that originally belongs to Indonesia and is known to have originated in the Java islands. They’re nothing but skewered and grilled meat served with a spicy sauce. Usually, chicken satay (ayam satay) is very popular in most of the local Warung (restaurants) and a popular street food in Bali and across other islands in Indonesia and beef, goat, mutton, pork, fish and tofu satay are popular in other parts of Southeast Asia. There’s so much of flavour in Asian
There have been many stories that satay originated in China, with the name derived from the Southern Min words sa tae bak , meaning “three pieces of meat”. However, contemporary scholars say that the English word “satay” is derived from Indonesian: sate, and Malay: saté or satai, both perhaps of Tamil origin, and that satay was developed by Javanese street vendors as an adaptation of Indian Kebabs. – Source WIKI
There are at least 50 different kinds of satay in Indonesia alone and the other variations in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Philippines. The Japanese version of satay is called – Yakitori and is also made of chicken.
Since most of us are vegetarians in India and we could possibly not let go the bursting flavours of satay this Baby Corn version is what I thought would do justice. You can also try this with tofu if you like the texture of tofu and you’re not allergic to soy beans. Paneer too is an option, but I highly recommend tofu over paneer 🙂
You can also try making vegetable satay with bell peppers, zucchini and pineapple with the same marinade.
This baby corn satay makes for a perfect finger food while watching matches, or for potlucks, parties and a general snack when you’re craving something hot, spicy but so healthy.
