DIRECTIONS

  • Trim and discard the ends of the long beans. Cut the beans crosswise into segments about 1 1/2 inches long.

  • Toss in the long beans and stir-fry 1-2 minutes.
  • Spoon in the roast chilli paste. Stir to mix well with the beans.
  • Add a quarter cup of water, stir and cover with a lid to allow the beans to steam.
  • Open lid and stir occasionally, adding more water as needed until the beans begin to turn tender.
  • Season to taste with fish sauce.
  • Add the basil, stir well into the mixture to wilt.
  • Continue to stir-fry until the beans are tender to your liking.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and serve warm along with the other dishes with steamed rice.
