Stir-fry Sambal Shrimp with Petai /Sator Beans (Stinky Beans)

Petai or Sator Beans or Stinky Beans is one of many Asian favourite beans which you can find everywhere in Malaysia,Indonesia,and Thailand.If you 're not use to eat this Stinky Beans ,it's can be really challenging.

Don't mistaken Sator beans from Broad beans or Lima beans.This beans have a very strong pungent or unique flavor after you consume it but don't worried in the other bright side you can benefit good source of vitamin A, calcium and phosphate from it. 

Anyway,in US we can't get petai or sator beans in pods,but we're lucky enough we can get it in frozen form at any Asian market in New York City. While I was cleaning my chest freezer,I found 2 small packs of petai sitting at the bottom of my freezer. I'm in the mood for stinky beans ,since it's been awhile I eat it at home.
