Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

If you enjoy Asian food then Ketjap Manis is a great sauce to have in your fridge. It's dark and sweet and really adds to Satay or Sunflower Butter Sauces. I don't like using sugar so I came up with this sauce using Agave Syrup in its place. I have tried the commercial Ketjap and it's thicker then mine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the agave and water in a small sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Using a candy thermometer bring the mixture up to 200'F.
  4. Once it reaches that temperature reduce the heat to low.
  5. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Store in the fridge for 2-3 months in a jar with a lid.
  7. Bon Appetit!
