Assam Curry Fish


Whipping up this curry is a breeze, all thanks to the ready cooked curry paste which I bought from the Kg. Simee market, for just only Rm2!



Ladies fingers or okra, halved bean curd puffs, halved tomatoes and the 'star' of this dish, black promfret.
The 2 rgt assam curry paste which will suffice for 1 whole fish and  ............ 'lo and behold' this is the end result .......


My favourite bean curd puffs, soaking in the curry ...... yummy


A delilcious, tangy and mouth watering one-dish dinner with protein, carbohydrates, fibre and vitamins .... All rolled in one!

Ingredients
  • 200 gm assam curry fish paste
  • 1 black pomfret - cleaned and cut into 3 portions
  • 2 tomatoes
  • a few pieces of okra
  • 10 pieces bean curd puffs
  • 2 cups of water
  • Salt to taste

Preparation

Just boil the paste with 2 cups of water, add in the tomatoes and bean curd puffs.  Next to go in is the okra and finally the fish.  Simmer for a while, add salt to taste and viola, it's done!



Note :  You can add in  some tamarind juice if you want the curry to be more tangy.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
