French beans with tempeh
Have you seen this packet?
Well, it doesn't only necessarily make prawn sambal, but it also can be used for making anchovies sambal (to go along with nasi lemak), or french beans with tempeh.
I was in a hurry to cook up some dinner, so decided to try this out.
Please please, don't follow the instructions at the back where they tell you to add oil and fry bla bla bla... This paste already has a ton of oil in it. I try not to use paste mix often because the trouble I have to go through to sieve the paste (yes, to remove as much oil as I can).
Ok here goes:
1. French beans - wash and cut to desired style and length
2. 1 onion - chopped
3. 4 pips of garlic - chopped
4. 1/4 inch of ginger - chopped
5. Tempeh- chopped to small cubes and pan fried
6. Approx 3 tablespoons of Brahim's Sambal paste mix
7. 1 or 2 green or red chillies
Add the paste mix into the wok. Then add the onions, garlic and ginger. Add 1/2 cup of water. Let it simmer. Add the french beans & green or red chillies and stir fry for a bit. Then add the tempeh. Stir it all up and your vege is done :)
Before serving, add some peanuts. Do this only before serving - otherwise the nuts will be soggy and it will ruin the taste for it all.
