Like what I said earlier life is incomplete without curry. Whether is beef chicken , fish or squi, it is a must have menu at home. When come to curry I preferred the Malaysian way a combination of Indian and Malay, not too thick and not too spicy. This basic recipe uses a Made in Malaysia Fish Curry Powder. 

There are many options of powder spicies but I preferred BABA, wonderful color and balance mixed of spices.It has just the right blend of spices for an authentic 'Malaysian-tasting' fish curry! 
Some ingredients vary - My favorite choices are okra, eggplants and mango. Mango is fantastic it made your curry sourish.....


1 whole pomfret cut into curry sizes
2 pieces ponfret eggs

 3/4 tsp mustard seeds (biji sawi)
 1¼ tsp halba campur / feneugreek
 2 stalks curry leaves
clean and keep aside.

Ground ingredients:
 15 shallots
4 cloves garlic
3 packets fish curry powder - I used BABA'S

Blend and form into wet paste. Put aside

Other Ingredients
2½ tbsp tamarind (asam jawa), mixed with 1/2 cup water and squeezed for juice
1 ladle oil
1 cup thick coconut milk
2 cups thin coconut milk
2 onions, quartered 
2 tomatoes, quartered
3 green mangoes halved
7 okras
lean and keep aside.

  1. Season fish head with salt and set aside; just before cooking rinse off the salt.
  2. Heat oil in an earthen pot and fry mustard seeds until they start to pop. Add the rest of the spices and fry until fragrant.
  3. Add ground ingredients and stir-fry well until aromatic; add a little tamarind juice to prevent the ingredients from sticking to the pot.
  4. Stir in the rest of the tamarind juice followed by thin coconut milk. When it begins to boil, add the eggplants and bring to a simmer for four to five minutes.
  5. Put in the fish, onions, tomatoes, mangoes and lady's fingers.
  6. When the fish  is almost cooked, pour in the thick coconut milk and add seasoning to taste.
  7. Bring to a boil and immediately turn off heat.
Cook's Note - I used 3 packet of Baba's curry powder to get right consistency and color.


Menu wajib yang menjadi favorite keluarga, kali ini saya masukkan telur ikan sekali. Susah hendak dapat telur ikan sekarang tetapi udah jumpa saya masukkan dalam kari. Resipi ini sudah banyak kali saya masuk.....tiada apa perubahan dengan yang terdahulu kecuali telur ikan aje.
