Met the Petai Once More

My initial sighting of this bean was in a tamu in Sabah, Malaysia. Then spotted anew in a pasar and padang in Yogyakarta, Indonesia (where I had some boiled ones still in its pod). After that, a more than just a stumble upon story when I cooked sambal with petai (aka stinky beans) in a Javanese cooking class. My conclusion is that, Malays love petai.

Mostly I see this variety.

But that brown one (in round tray) are also stinky beans says the cook.

Same with these packed ones.

    So you like fried petai. I’ve also observed that Indonesians are very fond of fried food
