Deep Fried Fish With Chili Padi Sauce

Hi there, Its a fishy fish day today people. Another fish recipe (Fried Kembung With Assam Sauce), thats right. This one I still consider as a no-frill recipe, but you got to work it out. I mean, you will spend more time in the kitchen, because it begins. Oh-gosh! Sounds like the start to a Tamil movie right? Just kidding. I like to inject some fun you know, anyhow, fish is deep fried, then topped with a spicy sauce elevated with chilli padi/birds eye chillies, soy sauce and a couple of the essential Malaysian/Asian ingredients.  Go on, make this dish. I sure would love your feedback.

For the fish
1 medium size siakap - score on both sides
1/2 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
A pinch of salt
Oil for frying
1 teaspoon of dark sauce
1 tablespoon of light sauce
1 teaspoon of sugar
½ lemon - extract juice
5 chili padi/birds eye chillies (cut into smaller sizes)
5 garlic - chopped
1 inch ginger - chopped
A handful of coriander (cut into smaller sizes)
Lather fish with turmeric powder and salt.
Heat sufficient oil.
Deep fry fish, remove and keep aside.
Leave about 2 tablespoons of oil in the wok.
Sauté garlic and ginger. 
Add chili padi and the rest of the ingredients. 
 Add ¼ cup of water.
Let it simmer.
Off the heat and stir in coriander leaves.
Pour sauce over fish and serve immediately.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!!
