This peanut sauce never gets to the fridge because, no matter how much I make it, it’s never enough.
Peanuts (or groundnuts) are an excellent source of protein, healthy fats, copper, and many other essential nutrients. For these reasons, peanuts are an important part of the yogic or any vegan or vegetarian diet. I love to include raw peanuts or peanut butter in a variety of my meals.

Things To Consider Before Making Sattvic Peanut Sauce
The main ingredient for the sauce is peanut butter, of course. I used peanut butter I made myself. You can do so as well, or you can use one from the store. If you go with the second option, be sure that your peanut butter is organic and contains only one ingredient – peanuts.
The second ingredient is tamarind. I prefer to use whole dried tamarinds and process them myself. It doesn’t take much time or effort and the results are well worth it. After removing the shells and cleaning, I place tamarinds into warm water for at least 20 min. (I love to soak mine even longer). Then I work them through a medium-mesh sieve, leaving seeds behind. The consistency and flavor of the tamarind paste are much better, in my opinion, when it’s done this way in comparison to the store-bought variety.
In this recipe, I use Universal Sattvic spice mix. I always keep it in my pantry. This mix is one of the most versatile spice mixes at my disposal. I encourage you to try it. It is quick and easy to make and it adds a whole other dimension to this sauce. If you don’t have all the necessary spices in your cupboard, till next time, you can get by with black pepper and sea salt.
I think that’s all you have to know. If you have any questions, you can ask me below 🙂

- Remove shells from tamarind and give it a quick rinse under the running water. Soak tamarind in half a cup of warm water at least 20 min (I love to soak mine even longer). Place medium-mesh sieve over a bowl. Transfer tamarind into a sieve. Using a silicone spatula or large spoon work tamarind through the sieve, leaving seeds behind. You will end up with fine tamarind paste.
- Combine tamarind paste, peanut butter, lemon juice, coconut aminos, ginger and seasoning mix*. Mix well and enjoy
- Keep it in an air tigt jar in the fridge.
