Sambal Petai

Sambal Petai
This recipe is definitely a keeper because my husband had a 2nd round of rice.
My husband and son love to eat Petai very much but not my daughter and I because
both of us found the smell unbearable.

Sambal is Asian hot sauce or paste typically made from a variety of chili with 
secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, dried prawns, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, 
palm sugar, lime juice and etc.  Different household has their own recipe for Sambal paste.
The Sambal that I used in this recipe is homemade by a single mother 
making some extra income.  My friends and I have been buying from her
because it is indeed delicious and minus all the hassle preparing the paste.

If you are interested to purchase or to help her out, kindly call Mdm Seet at 012-9813350.  
Mdm Seet's friend is also selling other type of paste.

For petai you have to slice open and check whether there are worms inside.
