SAMBAL JAWA



Dear Sofi, Tok was making this and she remembered you. Below is the recipe you once asked. Look at the huge petai! Anyway, if you can't find any petai there, substitute with anything that stinks as bad! hehe


Good luck to Kak Sarah and you in the exams!


ingredients:

fresh peeled petai (the more, the smellier)
long beans cut diagonally (cosmetic reason)
chilli padi (the more, the hotter)
tempe (fermented soya beans), fried crisp
chillie boh,
big onions, sliced
garlic, sliced
prawns,
tamarind juice
sweet soya sauce
salt, sugar

Method:
-fry onion and garlic till brown
-add in chilli boh, till fragrant
-add soya sauce
-add in prawns
-add in fried tempe, long beans
-add in chilli padi,
-add in tamarind juice
-add salt and sugar to taste

Macam ni rupanya sambal jawa, senang aje nak buat ek?

Just wondering why your Sambal Jawa is placed at the corner of the plate and not the centre? Is that the Javanese way of serving the sambal? ;)

p/s The huge petai can easily enter into the Malaysian Book of Records!

Nisak:

SO jadi balik ke tidak ni? Macam tak jadi jek bunyi nya? hehe

Pycno-

I was trying to be artistic. Guess arranging a petai dish at a corner was not to be eh?

Dont be duped! Those petai were actually of normal sizes but the angle taken in the shot had caused the blown up effect.

Some things you can use as substitute when you are abroad with limited resources.
1. Black olive. Boleh ganti petai. Rasanya pahit juga cuma bau dia tak busuk sangat. Bilas dulu kalau you bought the salted ones.
2. Green olive. Menambah sedap bila buat kari kepala ikan. It helps take away the hanyir jugak. Lagi pun olive ni rich with vitamin K. Siti pun suka.
3. Yogurt. Boleh digunakan sebagai menggantikan santan bila masak kari. Sebagai ganti asam jawa or asam keping, boleh guna lemon tapi buang biji dulu. Kalau ada santan pun, still lebih sedap guna yogurt. Lebih lemak.
