kering teri2

Call me a devoted much as I hate the smell, the taste and the after eating smell, my husband loves it..I was still willing to cook it for him. Almost 3 week ago I cooked this dish for him and the smell stayed in our house for about 2days...(hated it!). For you who does not know how bad the smell of sator is, let me explain it...when you consume this sator-also known as stink bean, you will smell something funny when you urinating. These edible beans produce peculiar smell similar to methane gas.
Okay, enough about the hatred part, let's talk about the love part...Many Indonesian loves to have sator in certain dishes. According to wikipedia, they are best when combined with other strong flavoured foods such as garlic, chile peppers, and dried shrimp, as in "sambal petai" or added to a Thai curry such as Thai Green Curry of Duck. Spicy anchovy with sator is one of perfect matches.

- 400g of dried anchovy, deep fry it until brown and crispy
- 150g of sator
- 8cloves of garlic, chop thinly
- 4cloves of shallot, chop thinly
- 100ml of Sambal Oelek
- 4Tbsp of brown sugar
- 4 lime leaves
- oil for sauteeing

kering teri

In a wok, saute chopped shallot and garlic with a little bit of oil until fragrant and crispy. Add sator and continue to saute for another 2minutes. Add Sambal Oelek and stir while cooking until boiling. Add brown sugar and stir and cook until changed color to brownish. Add lime leaves and then add fried anchovy and stir it well. Serve it with steamed rice and veggie dish.

Haha! Aku demen kering teri, without the pete tapinya. Duh it look so delish! I have a slight fear of making teri though, bis ntar bau nya tuh tersebar2 in our tiny apartment. :(

Came across your blog while i was googling "sator beans calgary". This recipe sure looks yummy. May I know where you bought the sator beans? Calgary?

I found once at Asian store in Edmonton, but never there after. You may try your luck in Asian store, it's normally frozen.
