Holland Beans & Prawns In Spicy Assam Sauce

I like to prepare this dish as this also a very fast and easy to prepare dish. This dish also very well balanced diets with the proper green and proteins. The original recipe using petai seeds but I don’t like it, thus I always replaced it with Holland Beans or Four Season Beans. I also had tried replacing the prawns with chicken and pork and it also work well. This dish can serve as main course with steamed rice.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 150 g petai seeds (or replaced with Four Season Beans or Holland Beans)
  • 100 g shelled prawns (or replaced with chicken or pork)
  • 1 onion, shredded

  • 3 tablespoon Spicy Asam Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Heat up oil and sauté spicy assam sauce until fragrant. Add in onion and stir-fry until aromatic.
  2. Add in petai, prawns and chili,and stir well. Add water and bring to boil until cooked.
  3. Dish up and serve hot.
