Peanut Dipping Sauce

Makes 1 cup

 

Jicama and Green Papaya Summer Rolls Thin this sauce with warm water if it is too thick to lightly coat the Jicama and Green Papaya Summer Rolls.

 

2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 small onion, finely chopped to yield 1/2 cup
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons chili paste
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted unsalted peanuts
1/4 cup boiling water

 

1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chili paste, curry powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Stir in the peanut butter, coconut milk, vinegar, brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of warm water. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring, until the sauce thickens and the peanut butter dissolves.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of the peanuts to the sauce and then transfer it to a blender. Blend until smooth, adding 2 to 4 tablespoons of boiling water to help the sauce emulsify. Transfer it to a bowl. Let cool to room temperature. Before serving, garnish with the remaining peanuts. The sauce may be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated in an airtight container. (Press plastic wrap directly on top of the sauce to prevent a skin from forming.) Bring the sauce back to room temperature for 1 hour before serving.
