And so, I thought, I made up my mind and I made this spicy version with salted fish and scented the dish with lemongrass and kaffir lime/limau purut leaves.
2 potatoes (about 300g) - boiled, cubed and fried
150g salted fish - soaked for 10 mins and cubed
1 lemongrass - bruised
3-4 kaffir lime leaves - tear into smaller pieces
4 tbsp oil
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and sugar for taste
7 dried red chillies (or as per taste)
1 medium size onion
When oil is heated, fry salted fish till crispy, remove and keep aside
Into the same oil, add the blended/grounded ingredients and lemongrass.
Stir-fry until aromatic.
Add in the fried potatoes, fried salted fish, lemon juice, sugar and salt to taste.
Stir all together for a couple of mins.
Lastly add lime leaves, one good stir and remove from heat.
