Good Day Everyone,
Hopefully it's been a great amazing day for you. On my side, I contributed more than enough of my share towards my company's mission and vision. Right now, here I am with all of you after crawling in the massive traffic jam. I actually feel quite lethargic and staring at the laptop is making it worst by also causing my brain power to slow down. So, let me just bring you closer to this pot of striking in colour and striking in taste fish (Ikan Pari/Stingray Sambal) curry. Bawal hitam, aka black pomfret, cooked with spices and white radish. You can opt for any other suitable fish, as for veg, okra/bendi, brinjals and even long beans can be considered as well.
As you will note soon, I've added a list of spices which you can buy at Indian grocers. These days, spices are also sold at Chinese medical halls, supermarkets, in fact, almost anywhere, either in big packs or small packs. Should you opt for the bigger packs, I suggest you store the balance in the fridge so that spices last longer instead of becoming rancid. Other than that, I might as well pull my brake to stop at this point. Good night everyone.
