The grocery store at the market was selling a large quantity of beans called Petai

On the main street of the Kanoman market, there were fish shops, fruit shops, and of course grocery stores. So they must be selling the vegetables I mentioned. So I looked at the vegetables displayed in the grocery store, and I didn't have to look for them. It was easy to find.

The vegetable was a bean called Petai, which is common in Indonesia. At first glance, they look like the beans I see in Japan. However, the size is quite different. You may not be able to tell by looking at the Petai alone, but the pods of the pute are quite large and bulky.

All the baskets placed at the grocery store were filled with Petai, and there were Petai hanging from the ceiling as well. There was a huge amount of Petai on display. I heard that these beans are used in various dishes in Indonesia, so I guess pute is a popular ingredient also here in Cirebon. I've seen Petai sold in grocery stores in Jakarta, and I've also seen Petai hanging casually from the eaves of food stalls. I hadn't really thought about it, but I'm sure it was used in many of the dishes I ate during my stay.
