(This is Petai)
During the fasting month, my hubby will not eat Petai, but then, when I cooked it for iftar yesterday, he just could not resist!!! Hahahah...... Here is the recipe:
One bowl of petai seeds (remove the petai seed by cutting the bulging skin with a small knife, and then remove the seed.) Cut the seed in halves.
200gm dried anchovies (ikan bilis)
2 large onions, sliced thinly
1 red chilli or 8 pcs cili padi (birds eyes chilli), also sliced thinly
3 pcs asam keping (googled for the name in English, cannot find lah....)
salt to taste
Fry ikan bilis until crispy. Add onions, chillies, asam keping and salt to taste. Finally add in petai seeds. Best to eat with rice.
But then, after eating petai, please do not use the public toilet.... the aroma is unbearable for some earthlings....Hahaha......
Petai can be eaten raw, but best to eat with the skin too. Read some where and also base on ancestors experience, have medicinal value, i.e. can avoid diabetes.
