Rally, I like the recipe will be prepared necessarily :) Several supplementary questions only - in creamy coconut milk you mean coconut cream? Peanut peanut butter mousse you? Chile chili powder / flakes? If I can be replaced with almond hazelnut flour? Finally, any idea whether you can replace five spices with something?

Nevi, hello! Yes, coconut milk is thick, which writes coconut cream. I guess you can put and normally the hard part, which is superimposed on the box inside. Peanut mousse is not peanut butter, but can easily be replaced. The difference is that peanut mousse is just ground peanuts and has a texture like tahini, i. E. Viscous. Peanut butter contains brown sugar, and further added fat. Chile - I used the flakes, but the woman, which saw the recipe, put finely chopped fresh chili. Uhashe better, but it was pretty spicy :) About 5 spices - of my package writes: anise, fennel, black pepper, cinnamon and ginger. Do not write in what proportion. But I think are essential ginger, cinnamon and pepper, at least they feel them immediately, the other two if you do not read, I could not fix them. And I know that this mixture has it and other staff, so-so strictly can not be. Hazelnut flour can be replaced with other nuts. Since I do not use corn flour, was bowled over what meal there ... hazelnuts, walnuts, peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, coconut, hemp, linseed, poppy, sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Put whatever you want :) And good appetite!

Thanks Rally. I've seen him peanut sauce, but here again it say oil ... I might try a simple and definitely will be fresh and very spicy chili pepper :)

Very tasty obtained, thanks for the recipe :) I bought a *five spices* in my feels anise (star) in addition to others. I used almond flour and almonds for sprinkling instead of parsley - coriander. I put peanut butter and maybe put a little more, because then my churning in the sauce (visible in the pictures), I had to drain it carefully. I do not buy peanut mousse, given that we have peanut butter / However, we really liked - I ate black rice, Paul Arab bread and we would definitely do it again.

Nevi, it's great that the dish you like! For fat, you really have come a bit too much, but maybe the difference in the products delivered and contrast in texture and it could not keep the fat in the sauce. If you do next time and want to use peanut butter, can put more of fatty coconut milk. Difference in products I mean that other companies, other properties and so on.. :) The picture seems appetizing and I know how delicious smells ... mmm;)
