From Ghee Rice (Ghee Rice, Tomato Rice & Jeera/Cumin Rice), lets proceed to Lamb Fried Rice. Of course rice story in my house will forever be on the go. After all, we Malaysians? I don't know about you, I must admit I am the biggest fan of rice and when we speak about fried rice on the whole, there will be on end (Kampung Fried Rice, Belacan Fried Rice & Chinese Fried Rice). Lamb Fried Rice (Lamb Pho/Vietnamese Noodle Soup)? Leftover cooked rice, minced lamb, potato, red capsicum and we Malaysians, how can we say no to spiciness.

If you are beginner to salmon, in other words, you have not much explored salmon or have not cooked before, let me show the way. The cooking way of course (Malaysian Indian Fish Curry, Chilli Soy Fish, Fried Kembung Assam Sauce & Ikan Pari/Stingray Sambal). Salmon unlike our local catch. They pretty much don't need much messing around in terms of ingredients. All you need? Some seasoning of dried oregano, dried mint leaves or other suitable dried herb, plus some crushed black pepper, salt and a tiny bit of oil for pan grilling (Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf, Otak-Otak & Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal). In fact, can be done in a jiffy and a dash of lemon juice atop grilled salmon. My-My!

Bitter Gourd. I know. Of course I know. Bitterness right? Obviously. Think again. Bitterness of bitter gourd is healthiness and when bitter gourd and prawns have become best friends in this spicy Indian curry. Believe me. Tolerable bitterness which also will be overpowered by spiciness and sourness (Tamarind Prawn Curry) and in return, Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry on the whole as a mouth packing delightfulness (Prawn Spinach Sodhi). So, what are you waiting for. Get the ingredients ready and get cooking.

Valakkai, plantain or green raw bananas? They sure are a delight when fried as crispy chips? Of course. For a matter of fact, anything fried (Lotus Root Chips, Crab Stick Chips & Fried Shrimp Wantons)? I bet you know what I am talking about? Valakkai Chips. For crunching as a snack or as a side for our rice meals. What is outstanding about my style to frying valakkai? I added curry leaves and shallots. Otherwise, its all equal as other valakkai chips.

So (Chinese Fried Rice, Belacan Fried Rice)? Rice elevated by tomato, shallots, ginger and garam masala.

What's with black pompret/bawal hitam in my house? Mostly, like directly or indirectly insisted by my other half-half. Why? His favorite amongst the rest of the catch. What about me? I just go with the fish flow because? We women. We are always putting our husbands and our family members in front of us even when food is a concern? We accommodate, or shall I say, as the years passes by, we just tolerate? Think about it, while I move on the recipe. Recipe. Not a winding road cooking show. The start is frying black pompret, thereafter make the sauce and tip over fish (Fried Fish in Soy Sauce & Spicy Grilled Black Pompret).
