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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
