Long Beans (Kacang Panjang) And Prawns In Coconut Sauce

I've just returned from work, and right now I am staring at this Long Beans/Kacang Panjang And Prawns In Coconut Sauce. In fact, it has already been half an hour I am still trying to figure which alphabets on the key board I should start tapping. Oh-god, a tiring day at work is really exhausting, so, what say you if I link some of my previous recipes made alongside similar ingredients as per this side dish? You agree? Thank you. I knew I can count on all you great followers of "cook with nava-k". Okay, lets get going, After a string of dishes (Spicy Chickpea Long Beans, Long Beans In Turmeric Milk Gravy & Prawn Cabbage In Lemongrass Coconut Sauce), here we have today this quite rich side dish made alongside prawns (Prawn Fritters Grilled Prawns), coconut milk (Nasi Dagang, Sodhi, Vegetable Green Curry & Potato Green Peas Curry) and saffron strands (Saffron Cinnamon Poached Pears & Beriyani Rice). Cooking technique is nothing brain cracking, the nearest alternative for saffron strands is turmeric powder. That's it for the day everyone, I'll catch up you again.  

15 (about 100g) long beans - cut into 1 inch length
10 medium size prawns - devein and leave the tail on
6 garlic - crushed
3 shallots - crushed
1/4 tsp saffron strands (or lesser)
1/2 cup thick coconut milk
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, sauté garlic and shallots. 
Add the rest of the ingredients. 
Simmer and cook over low heat to soften beans. 
Dish out. 
(Note:  for more sauce, add more water or coconut milk)
