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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
