 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    Cloves garlic, chopped
    2                    Chicken livers
    2       tb           Vegetable oil
    2       tb           Dark soy sauce
    2       tb           Sugar
    2       tb           Crunchy peanut butter
    2       ts           Sesame paste
      1/4                Red chilli, seeded & chopped
                         Water
 
   Saute the garlic and chicken livers in the oil until very darkly
   coloured.  Grind to a thick paste and return to the pan with the
   remaining ingredients.  Simmer, adding water to make a thick sauce,
   for about 2 mins, stirring constantly.
   Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.  Use as a dip for various roasted meats
   and meatballs and to spread over rice paper before wrapping cooked
   ingredients or salad.  A variation to this sauce uses tamarind pulp
   instead of the livers to give a tart tasting sauce.
