Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal

To and fro, back and forth, and back to fish taking the food center stage today (Sambal Tumis Ikan PariNyonya Fish Sambal). What is sambal? I told you before? Our Malaysian chilli based gravy or paste? Obviously, we need the sambal for this Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal. In other words, sambal is stuffed into fish and instead of frying, I baked. You can of course fry, but do not over stuff sambal in case it oozes out from fish while frying. Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal. Our Malaysian spicy proud house fish dish, paired alongside lime or lemon wedges (Fried Kembung Assam SauceOtak--Otak, Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf & Spicy Grilled Black Pompret/Bawal Hitam).

Kam Heong Prawns

Kam Heong Prawns. That's right. You read me loud and clear. The Chinese prawn dish (Fried Shrimp Wantons). But somehow, curry leaves have made their into Kam Heong Prawns? How come? Must be because of the wondrous scent. In fact, curry leaves are quite a favorite for Chinese dishes? I know so. Kam Heong Prawns. The popularity. Like a must when we dine in Chinese restaurants? The know how you must know for making Kam Heong Prawns. Put your trust in me. This recipe of mine will not be a failure (Tamarind Prawn Curry & Devilled Prawns).

Vegetarian Mutton Rendang

I think I am the first and I will most probably remain in the number one league until this recipe of mine is copied. Hopefully, those who copy have mastered the art of bluffology because rendang definitely is not from India. Of course, Malaysian Indians? Credit my recipe if you are badly want to copy. Actually, come to think of it, nothing much I can do. After all, in the virtual world, there are many loopholes for copying. Boo-hoo-hoo! Alright, let's get down to the business of making Vegetarian Mutton Rendang (Vegetarian Mutton Curry). Remember, we spoke about the vegetarianism theory to vegetarian mutton before (Vegetarian Mutton Varuval & Vegetarian Mutton Peratal)? We sure did. Vegetarian Mutton Rendang? Vegetarian mutton, Malaysian herbs, chillies, coconut milk and turmeric leaf scented. Tadaa!

Brinjal Stir-Fry

Brinjal? Gotto be a favourite in most households. For a matter of fact, for us Indians? I don't know about you, brinjal is quite favouble in my house. Any which way (Curried Ladies Fingers) and this Brinjal Stir-Fry? A Malaysian Indian style and pretty much an uncomplicated cooking matter. Sliced brinjals stir fried alongside ikan bilis/ anchovies, curry leaves, dried chilli paste, turmeric powder, ginger and garlic. Seriously like? Appetizing right (Kacang Buncis Tempe & Kangkung Belacan)? Oh, for a vegetarian version, do I have to say? Just say no to anchovies.
