Four Heavenly Kings (Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetables) 四大天王, a dish which I've been wanting to try for every long! I'm using my homemade dried shrimp sambal and rempah for the stir frying. Sedap! Trying to retain the purplish tone of the brinjal but not skilful enough. :P
- Heat 1 cup oil in wok. Add in petai, long beans and wing beans. Blanch in oil for 1 min. Remove and drain well. With remaining oil in wok, add in brinjal and quickly toss in oil for a min. Remove and drain well.
- Retain 2 tbsp oil in wok. Saute garlic till fragrant. Add in dried shrimp sambal and rempah and fry briefly till fragrant. Stir in tamarind water.
- Add in all the vegetables and mix well for another minute until heated through.
