Sambal Petai Tumis or 'stinky bean ' in sambal is the family all-time favourite dish. With this dish alone, we can have plates after plates of plain rice or coconut rice ( nasi lemak - local name ) A very appetizing dish ... hope this photo can whet up your appetite :p It has been quite a while since I last cooked this dish.
A lot of pounding to be done for the sambal ingredients. My pestle and mortar is the traditional ones and they are heavy so I seldom want to use it. But Daddy rather I pound the ingredients using a pestle and mortar then using a food processor. It is true that the sambal will taste much much better using a P &M :) but it involves a lot of work to cook this dish. But like I say, if I hang up the apron and not cook something nice, Daddy will take over the apron......not that I mind, but the washing after his cooking....gosh , I rather cook myself :p ( hope he is not reading this post ) Anyway , I cooked this for him so that he will not start to lament that I give him simple food everyday ( poor him ) and that I am married to the idiot box ( stuck with the korean dramas )
Hahaha...but I do crave for this too , so , to make two people happy , and to a good weekend ......Sambal Petai it is ! :p When the man of the house is happy, the woman of the house will have a good weekend. A hungry man is an angry man LOL!
