Recipe is OK! I prefer lime juice, though. Also, what is saki? I know sake' and it's great.

1 cup vegetable oil
½ cup peanuts
2 small green chili peppers
1 tablespoon ginger
4 each garlic cloves
1 ½ cups basil
¼ cup mint leaves
¼ cup cilantro
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar


Heat oil in a small skillet until nearly smoking, then remove from the heat and add the peanuts. Allow to sit until lightly browned. Remove the nuts with a slotted spoon and drain, reserving the oil.

Put the peanuts in a food processor or blender and blend to a rough paste. Add the chilies, ginger and garlic and continue to blend, Add the herbs and a little of the reserved oil, and continue to blend.

Add the salt, sugar and lemon juice, and blend until the herbs are very finely minced.
