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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
