    We used green thai chili instead of the bird’s eye, but the flvaor was magnificent. We stir fried some onions and kale with soy sauce to accompany this dish. We will definitely be making this again. Thanks again for the wonderful recipes!

    Hi Mun Ling, black beans are very dry, hard and salty, the ones that I cut and stomped will be mesahd but the seven others will mainly stay in sharp and just become a bit softer. So you can see them later on the plate and the flavour can add to the dish

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made this on the weekend and the sauce is spot on. It brought back all the memories of chilli crab from Singapore. This is a keeper.
