4 tbs palm sugar
4 tbs neutral oil
4 kaffir lime leaves
1 stick lemongrass, cut in 3 cm pieces
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs oyster sauce
4 cloves
1 star anise

Fry onions and garlic in a small pot until glazed. Add palm sugar and stir until sugar is caramelized. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat for 1 ½ hours.

If sauce is to thick you can add some vinegar. If it´s to liquid simmer a bit longer until the sauce is creamy.

Use a blender to make it a creamy sauce. Transfer warm sauce in preserving glasses. Stand on the lid side and leave there until it´s cold.
