This is just a simple vegetable dish I'd discovered during my last Shopping & Dining Trip in Bangkok. I was spell-bound the minute I took a bite into this dish at a Thai-Chinese Restaurant near Conrad Bangkok. They've added peppercorns, dried chilli & something I've never thought of adding in a vegetable dish - Sesame Seeds! These tiny seeds gave the beans an added crunch, making it an enjoyable treat for the family.
The reason to cook it on high fire it's because you want the veg to be dry so the peppercorns will not stick to them. Else, you'll have a problem biting into these peppercorns & they're not very tasty.
