Crunchy Long Beans With Sesame Seeds

About this recipe: 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.

Serves: 3 

  • Long Beans
  • Shitake Mushrooms
  • 1 tsp Dried chillies
  • 1 tsp Oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp Cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp Minced garlic
  • Pinch of Peppercorns
  • Pinch of salt & pepper

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Soak chillies & peppercorns in water.
  2. Wash long beans & cut them in equal lengths.
  3. Lightly rinse & cut off tip of mushrooms. Slice them thinly.
  4. Drain chillies & peppercorns. Heat oil & fry them till fragrant. Add garlic.
  5. Throw in long beans & add oyster sauce. Stir-fry @ high-heat for about 2mins, then put in mushrooms & rest of seasonings.
  6. When it's almost ready, stir in the sesame seeds & serve your crunchy veg dish.


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.
