Satay is one of the most famous Malay dishes in Singapore which is served at many hawker, restaurants etc. Whenever friends from overeseas come, I will recommend them this grilled seasoned skewered meat. Nowadays the prices of each satay stick is getting more expensive so I decided to try making them myself.
