Sambal Prawns with Petai

Err, I couldn't take it any longer! After batting my eyelashes at the buah petai jars in the pantry for several days, I finally caved in. Yesterday I just had to cook my first jar of Petai. This Ninja here bought three jars while I was in Melbourne, so clever of me, right?

This is a very simple easy dish to make, all my dishes are usually easy and fast. I get too hungry and don't have the patience. I have never measured anything I cooked and that is probably why I find that baking is so hard because baking is all about measurements and precisions.

Anyway, back to me, ahem!

Ingredients, approx only:

500gm of fresh or frozen prawn meat
1 jar of buah petai ( from asian supermarket)
Chilli Paste/jam
1 tablespoon of oil for frying chili paste
2 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of kicap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce)

Fry the chilli paste then throw in those suckers, the prawn I mean..
Add buah petai, strain the juice from the jar
Stif fry away.... left right left...and around we go!
When the prawns has changed colour, then it's cook.
Tada!!!! Serve with rice..;)

Suzy, I got mine in a jar, but it still craunchy and taste as fresh. At the Asian Grocery shop in Russell Street.
