Sambal Petai With Shrimps

This is a recipe for Sambal Petai With Shrimps. It's spicy but milder than the recipe that I have posted earlier. To those who are not familiar with Petai, it's also commonly known as Sator, or Sataw beans, and might taste quite peculiar to some people. There are many health benefits for Petai too. Here is the link, if you're keen on learning more about it.
