Four Angled Beans with Spicy Shrimp

Veggies with belachan (shrimp paste) are popular in this parts of the world... My particular fave combo is with the crunchy and pretty star-shaped four angled beans. You can easily buy belachan in granules or a block form but this can stink to the high heavens so I prefer substituting it with pounded shrimp and chilli.
