Yesterday evening we were sitting with friends at the deck having a good time. All of a sudden a large cloud of bats appeared flying over our heads into the night. It was truly amazing to witness them. #now #artfulliving #flame #flameoftheforest #kanha

Let there be no Lie in your Fire.

The evening sun is vanishing as fire crackles from the ember coloured charcoal. Sparks are flying from the grill and disappear into the air. As shadows grew longer, a makeshift pole is erected with lights hanging from it, offering a brighter surrounding.
Most of the tables have been occupied and orders are coming in fast. The aromatic smoke from the two grills, scent of lemongrass and spices, clouding the roofless court. Trails of light from vehicles streaming from the nearby road added to the scene.
The griller or satay man, place the marinated skewered meat of beef and chicken called satays, ten sticks at a time on the grill. With one hand to rotate the satays (to keep every side well grilled), the other hand will fan the burning charcoal to keep the fire low. For a few minutes, his attentive eyes and sense of smells are in sync to ensure the satays won't get burnt.
Before the satay is ready to be served, the griller dips a sheaf of lemongrass stem into a vessel of mixed water and cooking oil and sprinkles it on the grill. The flame will ignite for a brief moment, creating a singed, smoky taste to the tender and succulent satays.
A small bowl of peanut sauce or "kuah kacang" is served as a dipping sauce. Served together with pieces of cut cucumber, onions and "ketupat" on the side, it gives you that sensational taste, a 4th of July in your mouth.
The crowd grows larger by the minute as the night falls. Orders came in for 20 or 50 sticks a table. Some diners are still waiting for vacant tables while others opted for a take away. Their faces lit each time the flame ignites as they stand in front of the grill while waiting for their turn.
If you plan to eat satay, it is best to savour it together with your family and friends. A plate of of satays are meant to be shared. Share the food and share the joy.
