Sambal Petai with Prawns
This ohh-so-delicious Sambal Petai with Prawns recipe is contributed by Mdm Molly Leong, a Perankan home cooks, who cooks this dish on a monthly basis to satisfy the craving of her family members. The spiciness well-balanced with the sour taste from the Assam Juice, cooked with the freshness of the prawns is a great combination, and Petai adds the additional punch that enrich the flavor.
