We will let you in on a little secret... a trick that enables you to prepare lip-smacking Thai Peanut Sauce within minutes using peanut butter! Here, peanut butter is combined with coconut milk and typical Oriental flavour enhancers like garlic and lemongrass, to prepare a luscious and intensely tasty sauce, which can be used to make innumerable Thai delicacies.

A dash of brown sugar enhances the flavour of this sauce remarkably, so forget it not. Also, take care to cut the lemongrass into three large parts, so that you can easily remove and discard it after cooking.
