Well well well, here we are in another Covid 19 additional lock down measures, which for many of us, means more working from home, and best of all, cooking from home. So, allow me to share this simple recipe of stir fry long bean with dried shrimp and cilipadi, a dish that has a bit of kick, and perhaps satisfy some of the necessary nutrient requirements for your body.

Here goes.

long bean dried shrimp


  • a bunch of long bean, cut to 2 inches chunks
  • 6-12 cilipadi, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoon of dried shrimp, chopped finely, or mashed if you have pastel n mortar
  • 3-4 bulb garlic, choppeed
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce, or alternatively, a pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tablespoon cooking oil

Cooking Instructions:

  • heat up cooking oil, start frying cilipadi, dried shrimp, and garlic till fragrant
  • add long bean, fry until appropriate doneness (2-3 minutes at most)
  • shake some fish sauce in the last 30 seconds or so
  • serve while hot!

You can always use a less potent type of chili, or skip it altogether if you can’t handle hotness, which.. is a shame, really.

Stay safe!

Discuss : KY cooks – Long Bean with Dried Shrimp & Cilipadi

  1. I seldom cook spicy dish because my daughter still can’t eat spicy food but I think with dried shrimps, it’s more than enough for that aroma and flavours. Btw, you didn’t add water to cook the long beans as they are quite hard and not easily to be cooked until soften.

  2. That sure puts a lot of restaurants here to shame! Looks gorgeous!

  3. I see you like very crunchy long beans since you stir-fried them for only 2 – 3 minutes…and 6 – 12 cili api is a rather wide range, so I’m guessing you went with 12 since you like it really hot! ;D

  4. ever since i was a kid, i’d always say no to long beans. cos i preferred leafy veggies. even now tho, i’d never order long beans, so you won’t catch me cooking this 😉

  5. Haiyaaaa I’m hot enough la hahahaha

  6. Cili padi will definitely elevate the taste of any dish. 🙂 Of course the chef is important too.
