Buncis cah Udang is a type of dish that combines green beans with shrimp. This combination of green beans and shrimp can also be called a Szechuan-style stir-fried. If you want to eat healthy food but also need protein, you can make this buncis cah udang. Green beans are one type of vegetable that has many nutrients such as protein, iron, phosphorus, calcium, fiber, and so on. If mixed with meat that contains a lot of protein, this dish will be more beneficial for our body. For green beans, you can replace them with other types of vegetables according to your taste. My suggestions for the other vegetables that can be used for this dish, you can replace the green beans with broccoli or long beans, and cut the vegetables evenly so that they are cooked at the same time. The use of high heat is also very important so that the color of the cooked vegetables remains green and savory when eaten. And for the shrimp, you can replace it with minced chicken or minced beef.
