Sambal Buah Petai

Starting from today onward till end of this Saturday, I want to share with all of you my trip to Bidor and Teluk Intan.

Me and my husband love eating so much. He always say to everyone, "eat whatever you want while you can, otherwise you will regret. When you get older there are lots of things you cannot consume anymore". That is what he always say lar. Just imagine his waist had gone up to 10inches after 5 years of courting and luckily it maintain now. Anyhow, I also put on weight lar. Hahaha................. he surely will shout at me when I tell all of you he had put on so much weight.



During the public holiday - Labour Day and Wesak Day . The both of us are not working and he had decided to take a short trip to Teluk Intan to see the leaning tower and also looking for some good food. Will also show you have are the things I have bought back. Hmmmm........... apa lagi if not food. When, my mom and I saw this buah petai we were so happy. Coz it is a quite difficult to get buah petai in Penang. What we want is different type which is less smelly. The seed is smaller in size. I bought this bunch for RM12. Luckily my 2 sisters are not around. If not, surely not enough for the 4 of us who are so damn crazy on buah petai.


This is the amount of buah petai that we got after peeling. It had got like skin covering the fruit. Can anyone tell me, should I call this fruit or seed? Please correct me. So, after that you got to unskin it. We normally soak in the water for an hour. Sometimes, you don't be surprise there are some worms har. That are what I have got. Eeee.......... I will show you but not very clear. I am not so good in using this camera and my hubby is not around to help me. So, got to do it myself lor. But not bad also mah rite? Kasi sikit support lar. I were told that buah petai is actually good for those who had got diabetic.


For those of you that have not tried eating this before. Buah petai had got a crunchy texture and a little bit bitter. It was said that it helps to cut down cholesterol too. I can't say much because I don't have much fact about buah petai. Btw, hor what is buah petai called in English har? Anyone know? To me, I love Sambal Buah Petai so much and I cannot walk away if I ever see people selling it.










Can you see the white white thing. It had got a small worm there. Eee................ I told my mom that very rugi lar if here are so many spoilt one. Celaka!!!!




This is my Sambal Buah Petai. Hmmmm........ yum yum. There are brinjal, onion and prawn in this sambal. Does it looks good to you???? It's not difficult to prepare at all...............

OMG, I like sambal buah petai so much, but seldom eat now in KL, coz quite difficult to find too. I miss my mom's sambal petai..

nyx said...

Actually, I heard also that even though it is easier to remove the "white skin" after soaking with water .. it will affect the taste.

But I am not sure as I never cook petai before.

The Sambal Buah Petai looks really good though ... YUMZ! :)

girl-girl - Soak it for a while is ok and it helps to make the petai crunchy and more over some people do it to help to get rid some of the smell. We normally don't like to half it because the seed is quite small liau so if half lagi, like cannot eat anyone. We wanna feel the crunchyness mah............

Jenny - just with this dish is enough liau. KL......... I think I agree with you. Pretty difficult to find certain things. Even if you can get the cooked one also not so tasty hor?

ny - We will remove the skin first then only soak. Without soaking the skin is very easy to take out one.

Rabbit - fai fai fai!!!! Take your mum to market this weekend and ask her to cook for you. Then, you can share with us about your mum Sambal Buah Petai in your blog.

New Kid on the blog - I am waiting for your post........

Hor ny Ang Moh - hot ya? Will it make you more horny? LOL

Oh the sambal petai looks amazing, Erina! I always eat it at the chap fan places but never bothered to cook it at home, even though the Lip Sibn market has peeled petai (RM2 for a small packet). How are you woman? Wah, long time never talk to you la. Good to see your blog getting so many fans!

King's wife said...

King's Wife - This dish alone with rice, is more than enough liau lor.
