Notes

1. If you like spicier peanut sauce, you can substitute some of the cayenne peppers with bird eye peppers
2. 1 teaspoon tamarind + 2 tablespoon water
3. It will be pretty sticky and should clump together and you should be able to gather them into a ball or shape into a block. This can be stored in the fridge if you are not going to use the peanut sauce immediately.
