Sambal Sotong Petai

Blogger’s Meet – Picnic in Morib Beach, Klang on Labour’s Day.  Anyone interested?

It’s been ages that I’ve not cook anything spicy since CNY. When I spotted Petai selling at the morning market, I thought I must buy them even tho the price is a bit pricey that morning and they doesn’t look fresh anymore. Some of the petai is already sprouting. There’s something about a women’s tastebud. Not sure about you, but i do need something savoury + spicy + sour = PMS at certain day of the month.

Ingredients that I’ve used is almost the same as for Kangkung Belacan. This time, you may need to increased the amount of dry prawn (hae bee) to half a bowl. For a lovely aroma, shread thinly 2 Kaffir leaves. Instead of using water, substitute with thick tamerind juice or you can use lime juice.

    what kind of belacan u use?
    u make your own? or you buy from the shop? any particular brand?

    The Queen says:  You must be kidding me if I made my own belacan!  I’ve tried the Maggie granule belacan powder. They are so lack of aroma.  I still prefer the block type from the sundary shop.

    Let me see if I understand this. If you eat something that will turn your mouth on fire and drain all of your pores and snot, then you forget about PMS? If this is true I need it quick!

    I think the belacan will be more fragrant if u “peng” a while before that it to pound….

    Oh forgot to ask u, no need add any sugar??

    The Queen says:  I used very minimal of sugar in my cooking or none at all except for marinating.  Infact, if you used the right amount of belacan, you don’t need other seasoning at the most, maybe you just sprinkle some soya sauce.

    I am always hungry for petai… and this one is with sotong… yummie…

    Actually how long you need to cook the sotong? I felt I tend to overcook it. Always taste like getah. What is the best cooking time?

    The Queen says:  Avoid buying BIG sotong as their texture is definitely will turn rubbery no matter how you cook them.  I don’t have a specific cooking time but once the colour turn from translucent white to milky white, you can dish them up.
