Petai is a long, flat, and tender bean, ideal for soups or to re-create a traditional Malaysian Sambal prawn dish.

According to Wikipedia[] – Petai is also known as Parkia speciosa. “It bears long, flat edible beans with bright green seeds the size and shape of plump almonds which have a rather peculiar smell, similar to, but stronger than that of the Shiitake mushroom, characterised by some as being similar to natural gas. The trees can grow up to about 30 meters.”
