toasted sesame oil
sweet chili sauce

This recipe was great! It is very versatile, I like that the measurements of the ingredients can be adjusted to your preference (adjust the curry and chili sauce for level of heat). I didn't have the toasted sesame oil, or the rice wine vinegar on hand, and it was still very good! I served it over noodles, topped with chicken, water chestnuts green onions, red bell peppers, chopped peanuts, bean sprouts and cilantro. It got rave reviews at our dinner, and I've referred 2 people already to this recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
Followed the recipe except for omitting the fish sauce and using dried ginger instead of pickled, but something about the amounts seems off. The peanut butter/coconut milk was way too thick. It didn't get melty as it heated, just seemed to get thicker (more so than the peanut butter right out of the jar. I used Skippy Natural). I ended up having to add lots more coconut milk just to get it close to the right consistency. I think the extra coconut milk may have diluted the other flavors too much though because I found this pretty bland for peanut sauce. I like the ingredients and I will tinker with this recipe again, but I wonder if I'd be better off with doubling everything but the peanut butter?
This is a relatively easy recipe with authentic flavor. I didn't have pickled ginger so I just used a bit of fresh. Tastes like the restaurant down the street. Thanks!
The natural style peanut butter works well in this sauce, and like other reviewers, I added more coconut milk because the can is barely used when prepared as directed, it doesn't hurt it and it make more. I used equal parts peanut butter coconut milk. Also, I did not use the sweet chili sauce but the red chili paste because we use sweet chili sauce as the other condiment with the chicken skewers which we marinade with... did not use rice wine but substituted with red wine vinegar. This is *excellent* in a meal with chicken bentos, rice and edamame, super easy too (though it does have some ingredients that you might have to shop for). thanks to the submitter!
Made exactly according to the recipe except I didn't have any rice wine so I doubled the rice wine vinegar. Served with spaghetti noodles and chicken. It tasted great, but the leftover sauce was a little thick and gloppy so I thinned the leftover with a couple Tbsp. of coconut milk. This is almost identical to J. Alexanders' restaurant peanut sauce that they drizzle on their Thai Kai Chicken Salad that has already been tossed in honey-lime-cilantro viniagrette. YUM!
Great recipe. Better if made ahead to allow flavors to meld. Added some red pepper flakes for a little kick. Served with satay chicken skewers from Costco that are ready in 20 minutes. Great condiment.
I didn't follow directions, my bad. I put everything in the sauce pan and looked back and it was thick, like sour cream. SO...I added the whole can of cocount milk and added another t. of curry and 2 T of sambal, one would probably suffice for tamer tastebuds, then ran it thru the blender. Perfection!
Thickened this up after using it to marinate chicken and served it as a sauce with sprinkled chopped peanuts as a garnish, very nice indeed
