Long Beans (Kacang Panjang) And Prawns In Coconut Sauce

I'm back from work and right now I'm staring at this dish. Supposedly instead of cracking the head for an impressive intro, let me just quickly start off by linking the long beans in turmeric-milk gravy and the spicy chickpea and long beans recipes. Obviously with long beans as the core ingredient. One more with long beans is this latest dish. The same cooking style but quite a rich dish with saffron strands from the balance after using for nasi beriyani. The strands I know are a luxury. Of course the alternative is to use turmeric powder. That's all for today until I'm back again with another post. 

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 water or coconut milk)
