Such a fantastic use of the flexible green pods of haole koa, the ones which don’t form large green seeds! This recipe inspiration comes from Food Foodz –> watch here. You can of course cut the pods into different shapes, but the fine julienne at an angle has a great mouth feel and texture.
2 cups haole koa pods, julienned on an angle
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup tomato, chopped
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons green chillies, minced
1/4 cup mint, rough chop
1/4 cup cilantro, rough chop
juice of 1 lemon
salt, to taste
Rinse pods in water.
Cut into thin long julienned strips.
You can use them immediately unprocessed to prepare the dish, or follow how-to instructions here for processing.
