Buncis Tumis Ebi - Green Bean and Dried Shrimp Stir Fry

One of the simplest Indonesian way to prepare greens, especially green beans and snake beans, is definitely stir frying with dried shrimps and galangal slices. If you cannot find dried shrimps, Japanese katsuo bushi (dried bonito shavings) can be used instead, but sprinkles at the very end of the cooking.
