Mostly I make this salad for my self , my husband can't eat bird chilli. So I always make a different kind of salad for him.
100 gr bean sprouts
100 gr cabbage, thinly shredded
100 gr long beans (snake beans), cut into 1/4 inches
1 English cucumber cut into small cubes
bunch of lemon basil, just the leaves
1 - 2 carrot, cut julienne
Wash and cut all veggies and try to have the cut veggies in uniforms.
Parboil beansprout and long beans.
In large bowl, combine all the veggies and add the peanut sauce just before you are about to serve.
3 - 4 tbsp peanut butter
6 bird's eye chillies
3 cloves garlic, saute for 2 minutes
2 tsp zoriander powder (kencur)
1 tbsp fried shallot
3 tbsp palm sugar
1/2 tsp shrimp paste, saute 1 - 2 minutes
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp salt
150 ml hot water
In food processor combine everything, pulse it into a thick sauce. The texture shouldn't be too smooth. Adjust the taste and serve.
