  1. FOR SATTI: Marinate chicken/beef with calamansi, salt, sugar and achuete. Then skewer.
    2. Brush with coconut milk (optional)
    3. Grill until cooked through.
  2. FOR SAUCE: Boil 6 quarts of water. Add the taro root, curry powder, chicken bouillon cubes, coconut milk and 1 teaspoon peanut butter. Stir, bring it to a boil and simmer.
  3. Using a blender/food processor, make a blended paste of; siling labuyo, ginger, turmeric, onions and oregano leaves. (You may add little water to let it blend together). Set aside.
  4. Make Flour-Cornstarch Mixture: Combine flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt and achuete powder. Add 1 cup (or more) of water, mix it well until free of lumps.
  5. In a pan, heat oil to sauté shrimp paste and tomatoes. Then add the blended paste (from step 2). Sauté until partly dried.
  6. Once the paste becomes partly dry, add this to the boiling water (from step 1). Mix it well and add the coconut milk (optional).
  7. Add the Flour-Cornstarch mixture from step 3. Adjust with water to reach desired thickness.
  8. Simmer over medium flame for about 15 to 30 minutes (or more). Constantly stirring to prevent “sticking” at the bottom of the pot.
  9. Add with little water if needed to adjust the thickness of the soup.
  10. Turn-off heat and let it cool.
  11. Serve it on a platter with Puso (rice), Grilled beef/chicken and Satti Sauce. Enjoy!
