Stir Fry Scrambled Eggs & Petai

Pardon me, but I'm a fan of petai *grin*
Many dislike the taste and mainly the strong fragrant they have, but still I like them :P
To me, the fragrant is not something that can be described as nice, but it's not a bad smell either
But what I like is mainly the taste :)
Not too often though, cos eating them doesn't go easy on my budget for buying mouthwash hehehe...

This recipe is from my mum whom also a fan of petai hihihi...

What you need:

4 eggs - lightly beaten with 2 pinches of salt
20pcs petai - halved (approximately half packet)
5 shallots - cut thinly
2 big red chillies - discard the seeds and cut
salt, pepper,  a pinch sugar, dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
a little oil, water

Heat oil in the frying pan, stir fry shallots and red chillies til soft and fragrant
Pour in beaten eggs, stir continously til it forms scrambled eggs
Add in salt, pepper, kecap manis and sugar - stir well
Add in petai and water, stir well
Bring to boil, then let it simmer til petai soften - approximately 10minutes
(add water when necessary, adjust the taste)
Off heat
