Fried Fish With Assam Sauce, Fish chilli Soy Sauce, Grilled Mackerel With Yogurt Dip & Nyonya Fish Sambal). Now, these days cooking I realise is pretty much simplified. Ready made curry paste is not a secret anymore, in fact its an option for a fast to cook and ready to eat dish within, lets say 10 minutes time. Sure, if you are always battling for time, I will encourage to stock up a few packets of the pre-prepared curry paste. However, if you yearn for a made from a scratch green curry paste, do I have to anything now? Obviously, I think you know where we are heading to. Yes, everyone, to this green fish curry (Assam Fish Curry, Ikan Pari/Stingray Spicy Lemongrass Sauce, Fish Curry With Radish & Steamed Cod Fish). I vouch its rather uncomplicated too, what more fresh ingredients for the lovely awesomely tempting creamy, spicy and aromatic green curry with crispy fried fish (Vegetable Green Curry). I got to go followers of "cook with nava-k". Time is also biting into my schedule. See you next time.
