Salted Fish & Mango Sambal (Gravy)

Salted fish and mango sounds weird?? Absolutely not. You have to try to believe me. The saltiness of salted fish, sour-sweet mango taste, belacan and curry leaves simply ohlalala!! for any typical Asian like me. Such an easy to make dish and what else can you eat it with except rice.

1 medium size piece salted kurau/ thread fin salt fish (soaked and cut into pieces) 
1 semi ripe mango (remove skin and cut into long thin stripes)
4 shallots (sliced thinly)
3 pips garlic (sliced thinly)
1 tbsp dried chilli paste (or the amount you prefer)
1 tsp belacan/shrimp paste powder
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 small piece of palm sugar 
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

In heated oil, fry fish  till crispy.
Remove and keep aside
In the same oil, saute shallots and garlic.  
Add chilli paste, belacan, sugar and curry leaves.
Season with salt
Cook till aromatic.
Add fish and mango.
Stir in and dish out.
