During my trip to Cameron Highlands, I bought one bunch of petai from the road side stall. They were very cheap! It cost me only RM10.00. I managed to get 300g of beans after opening up the pods. That is enough for me too cook 3 times. They are worth buying.
I am supposed to make my sambal chilli paste today but I am just too lazy to do it. So the lazy me, got a small bottle of instant one from the market. To my pleasant surprise, the ABC brand Sambal Chilli paste is not bad at all!
300g shelled medium prawns (deveined)
1 big onion, sliced
2 lime leaves, shredded
1 tablespoon of tamerind juice (optional)
1 red chilli
2 to 3 tablespoons of ABC brand sambal chilli paste
1) Heat up wok with 2 tablespoon of oil, fry big onion till fragrant, add sambal paste and stir fry for 5 minutes.
2) Pour in prawns and lime leaves and fry till cooked. Add in tamerind water, fry for few seconds. Dish up on a serving plate.
3) Serve with plain rice. Enjoy.
