Balinese Satay Pusut

A lot of pleasant memories about this specific dish, satay pusut, chargrilled satay with a mild balinese spices. My sister, Mia, is crazy about it that she often bought them in bucketloads during the weekend from an old balinese lady at the corner of Sukawati market. We usually sat outside watching the evening sky or traffic while chewing this juicy stick bit by bit.
