Kacang Botol Kerabu Recipe

(Nyonya Wing Bean Kerabu Recipe)


100 g wing beans (kacang botol), pinch off the ends and stringed

40 g (4) shallots, peeled and thinly sliced

1 tablespoon toasted grated coconut (kerisik), pounded



2 tablespoons sambal belachan (pls refer more Nyonya Recipes)

1 tablespoon dried shrimps, soaked to soften and pounded

3 tablespoons calamansi juice (extracted from 3 calamansi), or to taste

1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste

a pinch of salt, or to taste



Wash wing beans and bring a pot of water to the boil.  Put in the wing beans.  Cook wing beans for half a minute before removing to a colander.  Rinse the beans under cool running water to stop the cooking.  Slice the wing beans 1cm-thick, at a slant.  Combine the dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl, stirring to dissolve the sugar.  Toss together with the wing bean, shallot and toasted grated coconut.  Serve immediately.
