Sambal Prawns with Edamame


I got this sambal recipe from Farina's. Is simple and really easy to make. Since I don't have sambal oelek I replaced it with my homemade sambal. I added some edamame for color and it makes this dish look like sambal petai :) Thanks Farina for the recipe. For those who are interested in the recipe you can find it here : http://princessjournals.blogspot.com/

Hei, when I first saw the pictures, I thought it was petai too.
I need to retun home to enjoy petai because no one here likes them. :(
Drooling already.....

Nonya, I tried looking for frozen petai from the Vietnamese store but can't find any so edamame was the next best thing minus the smell :)

i pun ingatkan petai tadi. lol! here i cannot eat petailah. takut toilet berbau!

I Cook4Fun said...

Pearly, you husband angmo also eat petai? Lucky you. If is my husband he will ran for his life if I cook petai for him :) :)

PJ, my mom said if you eat petai eat kali with terung. This way the toilet won't smell so bad. She even hang a terung kat tandas to eliminate the smell.

PEARLY said...

yes your mum is right , when I cook petai I also have the kali rerung too

Gert,
You mom is way too funny. Gantung terung in the tandas to emliminate the petai smell. I will sure try that.

Your sambal udang with edamame looks so good. Ada bawang lagi. Sedap.

I Cook4Fun said...

Cat, she will do anything to eliminate the smell. Can you imagine the bau when all the 7 of us makan petai and used the tandas :) PENGSAN !! it works.
Cat, cuba masak this dish. Sedap.

aiyah nonya said...

Heh, this is the first time I hear about the terung. Must try !

SteamyKitchen said...

This looks really easy and good. Will have to try this next!

PrincessJournals said...

wah! gantung terung in the toilet? if u say it works, then nanti i boleh try. if not, kena spray the toilet every 10min. hahahaha..

I Cook4Fun said...

Nonya, my mom did that long time ago.

Jayden, thanks for dropping by.

PJ, you cuba tengok. I think you should makan the terung and then hang one in the toilet :)

Zue Murphy said...

Gert, how she gantung the terung? Satu biji? Must cut first or in whole? This is the first time I heard of such petua. You should open up another blog for just petua.Very informative. BTW, I must try your recipe since I have edamame.

Gert...wau la..i love your presentation picture...of course la that meal is the main spot!!..what is u camera brand??.so clear and nice..Can use edamame to stir fry sambal udang also??.I only eat edamame steam with salt.In NYC supermarket,I saw petai sold there,100 gm for 1.50 only,,not bad..the petai color very hijau and look fresh..of course frozen.Since I never eat it,I dunno the different.Eat once when I was kid but don't like the taste.

I Cook4Fun said...

Zue, you slit a bit of the terung before hanging it up. But I think eating petai with terung works better.

Beachlover, thank you. I used Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX07. Lighting is very important when you take a close-up pictures. I can't find petai so I used edamame lor. Not everyone like petai. I can't stand petai too when I was young. Now is ok :)

Sue Sue said...

Wan,
Good idea ah endamme to substitute with petai. Going to try that for my Dearie Suki and see what he say.

I Cook4Fun said...

Sue, I cannot find petai so endamame also can do lah :) Are you sure your Dearie Suki will like it. It doesn't smell like petai :)

Andaliman said...

hmmm it's kinda like sambal balado with petai and udang. I miss that food.
