    French Tart's Note:

    I discovered this yellowing paper cutting in my Mum's recipe scrapbook recently - this recipe is the one we always used to use when I was younger. The recipe was posted in the South China Morning Post in 1963 - by a chef from The Repulse Bay Hotel - that lovely old Colonial hotel is sadly no longer there......they used to have this great satay on the menu, as well as the MOST amazing Club Sandwiches! Absolutely authentic and I have decided to share it with you all!! If some of the language is a bit archaic - it is because I have decided to post it, as it was written in the paper at the time!

      These are sweet chicken satay skewers. The sauce has a sweet tamarind nutty taste and when mixed with the chicken gives a hint of lemon as well. Used a pc of dried red chili but other than that followed recipe as is and used the help of the kitchen converter for the measurements (I agree that the measurements are a bit archaic! :D) Next time, we'll half the satay sauce ingredients since results were nearly a bowl when half of it would have been enough. Thanks for posting this, French Tart!
