Petai And Dried Prawns Sambal


Previously said (Benefits of Eating Petai), petai or stink bean is one of the healthiest beans in the world. Undoubtedly it is, proven and scientifically known as"Parkia Speciosa", the beans taste absolutely good in sambal/ chill based gravy and  with seafood. Today, let me share with you a basic style - petai cooked with dried prawns, chillies and to balance up the flavours, a little palm sugar and lime juice. Come on peeps, lets get going.

Ingredients
250g of petai (sliced)
200g of dried prawns (soaked and pounded roughly)
1-2 tbsp dried chilli paste (dried red chillies pounded/grounded/blended with some water)
1 medium onion (chopped/sliced)
5 pips garlic (chopped)
1/2 lime (squeeze out the juice)
A piece palm sugar.
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Method:
Dry fry dried prawns till crunchy and light brown in colour.
Remove and keep aside. 
Heat oil and when heated, saute onion and garlic.
Then add chilli pate.
Stir and cook till oil splits.
Season with palm sugar, salt and lime juice.
