Kerabu Kacang Botol [4 Angled Beans Salad]

Spicy, crunchy vegetable salad - Kerabu Kacang Botol.   Easy to prepare yet appetising with rice.  Fresh 4 angled beans and fragrant ginger flower mixed with a good sambal and crunchy peanuts is a yes yes salad.
You can use fried shredded squids or pounded dried prawns to this dish.  I used fresh toasted  and sesame seeds which is as good.

Kimmy, I agree 100% that this is a yes, yes, yes, salad! I love having bunga kantan in kerabu as it gives it that very special aroma. This kerabu is a must-try for kerabu lovers like me!

Hi Phong Hong, this is good 'exercise for the jaws' salad. But I like it too.

Hi Madeline, do try but make sure that you buy the 'muda-muda' kacang botol so that it is crunchy and tender.
