Servings: About 1 cup

2 shallots, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 stalk fresh lemon grass, white part only, finely chopped
1 ½ tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon red curry paste, or 1 teaspoon cayenne
¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
1 tablespoon palm sugar or brown sugar
1 tablespoon nước mắm (fish sauce)
1 cup thin coconut milk

In a saucepan, sauté shallots, garlic and lemon grass in oil until soft. Add red curry paste and cook 1 minute until fragrant.
