Long Beans Sambal with Prawns

Long Beans Sambal with shrimp
I missed all singaporean food like sambal olek, sambal eggs, sambal ikan, sambal belcan ladies finger etc. I can see this dishes daily in each and every food courts there. This dish is all time favourite to Singaporeans. I learnt this recipe only when I was in Singapore. It's very quick to cut long beans and stir fry it within 5 minutes. It's also an excellent dish for crowd pleaser.

It has good source of vitamin C, folic acid and fibre. Prawn has high protein and zero carbohydrates.
what to need?

What to need:
Long beans = 1 pound
Shrimp = 1/2 pound peeled and devein ( I used frozen salad shrimp)
Sambal Oelek = 2 tbsp or adjust to the spicy level
Small onion = 1 thinly sliced
Garlic = 3 to 4 cloves
Red chilly = 2 sliced fresh or dry
Curry leaves = few
Brown sugar = 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Method:
Cut long beans to 11/2" long. Heat some oil in the wok and add 1 tsp of cumin(optional). Stir fry garlic,onions and curry leaves until lightly brown. Add sambal paste and stir fry for one to two minutes. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes and then long beans and chilli. Stir fry for about 3 min or until the beans are cooked.
Singaporeans serve hot with warm rice. I serve it with fish curry or any seafood curry which is a good combo for this side dish.
Variations:
Replace it with asparagus or french beans.

I am sending this recipe to Divya for Diet Foods Event.
