Salted Fish & Mango Sambal (Gravy)

A weird combination? Of course not. I made Salted Fish & Mango Sambal, and I just so loved the role play of saltiness, sourness and spiciness in one. Anyway, have you tried Salted Fish (Pada Salt Fish Pickle & Salt Fish Pickle) & Mango Sambal before? If you have not, you shouldn't comment. Unless and until you make and taste, your feedback is valid. Otherwise?

1 medium size piece salted kurau/ thread fin salt fish (soak and cut into pieces) 
1 semi ripe mango (remove skin and cut into long thin stripes)
4 shallots (slice thinly)
3 pips garlic (slice thinly)
1 tbsp/or as needed dried chilli paste 
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 for a min or two, dish out.
