Benefits of Eating Petai and Recipe

There's numerous benefits of eating petai for example; treating depression, blood pressure, obesity, constipation, brain power and the list goes on. Regardless of that,  it is not eaten by everyone. Mainly because of its bitter taste and smell and after consequences, again the overwhelming smell when nature calls. I on the hand simply love petai especially when cooked with chilli gravy/sambal, prawns, ikan bilis, salted fish or prawns and of course raw.

As a matter of fact, I have made quite a number of dishes but that time I didn't own a blog. Its now possible because I have started journaling whatever I cook on I shall begin with this stir fried petai dish - made with anchovies/ikan bilis, boiled eggs and chillies and combined with lime juice. The recipe is my mum's which she picked up from our previous Malay neighbour from those days.

5 tablespoon ikan bilis -soaked and rinsed thoroughly to remove the little bones.
1 big onion
10 small chilli padi (or as preferred)
I small bunch of petai (only the pods)
3 boiled eggs (chopped)
Lime/lemon juice - as needed
3 tablespoon oil
Salt for taste
Roughly pound petai with ikan bilis, onion and chillies together or separately - whichever is convenient for you.
Keep aside.
Heat oil and add pounded ingredients.
Saute over low heat for a couple of minutes.
Add eggs, lime juice and salt.
Stir and fry to combine all together.
Dish out.
