from the moosewood
an Indonesian spicy peanut sauce
Serve over rice and steamed spinach. Also good with tofu.
In a saucepan, cook the onions, garlic, bay leaf and ginger in butter, lightly salted.
When onion becomes translucent add remaining ingredients.
Simmer on lowest possible heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
(Note: Sauce will seem thin when you add the water, but it will thicken when it simmers. Stir often so as not to let it stick to the bottom of the pan. Use a big pan.)
