pdai (Malaysian and Indonesian)


Language: Malaysian and Indonesian

Description: Large bright green, bean-like seeds. In Thailand these would usually be found still in their very large, heavy pod but are generally removed for export. They have a texture rather like very fresh almonds and a strong, garlicky flavour. They are eaten raw or cooked whole and used in sambals.
