4 Heavenly King

Hahaha... 4 Heavenly King. Aik... not the Hong Kong 4 Heavenly King singers ya, but it is a dishes and in Chinese it is called 'Sei Tai Tin Wong' and it consist of 4 types of beans or vegetables and cooked it with sambal.

What a name for it. I was puzzled one day when we went out for dinner with Aunty Rose. She was telling me lets order 'Sei Tai Tin Wong'. Huh, what is that and she told me it a vegetables dish. Oooo... now I know it is actually using 4 types of beans and one of it is my Dearie Suki favourite smelly Petai beans.

I planted a brinjal plant and after about 4 months, here come my pathetic short and skinny brinjal. The one and only from the tree. Cut it off and used it to cook this dish.

As long as the Ee-Thern's feeding spoon

1 tbsp chopped onion
2 tbsp dried prawns
1 cup petai
1 cup long beans, cut into 3 cm length
1 cup brinjals, cut into 3 cm length
1 cup ladies fingers, cut into 2 cm length
Some chilli paste & belacan powder
Salt & Sugar to taste

1.Blanched the long beans, brinjals and ladies fingers in hot water till soft. (The recipe require to deep fried the vegetables in hot oil for 1 minute but I blanched it with hot boiling water because deep fry will be very oily )

3. Add in chilli paste and belacan powder and seasoning. Fry for another 2 minutes and mixed well.Dish up and serve with rice.
