Looks delicious. Satay is one of my top favourites. My family love satays. Can'r wait for summer to be here to make satay.Wow, your chicken satay looks gorgeous. I made chicken kebab on Sunday and I thought it came out great but yours look better!!! Also, I see that you made Okonomiyaki in the past. I make it all the time. It is one of my favorite Japanese food.
