So, another blog entry for Assam Curry? Sure! Remember my previous Assam Curry Fish? If you can't remember, perhaps, you would like to do the flipping back to the recipe prior to digesting this another Assam Fish Curry? And this Nyonya Assam Fish curry mind you, is a popular take amongst us Malaysians (Nyonya Fish Sambal & Grilled Fish Sambal Stuffed). Assam basically means sourness and don't we Malaysians love sour notes (Kembung Assam Sauce, Chilli Soy Fish, Bengali Yogurt Fish Curry & Penang Assam Laksa)? I do. Honestly, I do. A fusion between Chinese and Malay ingredients, spices and local herbs, Nyonya assam fish curry is just so mind blowing. Terrific bold spicy tastes, aromatic and of course tanginess. Come follow me, let's learn how to make Nyonya Assam Fish Curry (Malaysian Indian Fish Curry, Pompret Soy Sauce & Stingray Spicy Sauce).

Cooking is definitely a food and hunger pleasure. But trust me, what to cook for the day is most challenging. Especially for those of you who cook daily. I know. Tell me about it? I suppose the onus is on the person who take the trouble to cook? Indeed. Thank god, for us, it may not necessarily be rice daily though appreciated. Sometimes, every now and then, I do detour to a noodle dish (Mee Rojak Vegetarian, Laksam Noodle, Hokkien Mee, Fried Mee & Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon). Potentially faster and in a jiffy and without compromising on the key essentials to a filling, wholesome and nutritious meal. This Mee Siam I reckon will be utterly satisfying for tummy anytime of the day. Mee hoon fried with dried prawns, Chinese cabbage, egg, tofu and chillies.

Don't we Malaysians love our sambal? Of course. Undeniably. I don't know about you, I on the other hand am an avid fan of sambal. Basically I so love sambal, which is, as I have already told you before (Stingray Spicy Sauce), chilli base. Various types of sambal, potentially though the must use ingredients are chillies, dried or fresh, shallots or onion and the rest, well, any other as per your choice or preference (Grilled Fish Sambal Stuffed, Sambal, Sambal Udang & Sambal Petai Dried Shrimp). Enough said don't you think so? Right. Kaffir lime/limau purut leaves and lemongrass scented and tender sotong/squid in a spicy gravy.

You actually think its a weird combination? Fish in Sambar? No. Of course not. Certainly not. Just because you have not made it before or you have not tasted before (Pumpkin Salted Fish Curry, Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry & Salted Fish Mango Sambal), please do not shot down other peoples food pride. If egg in rasam is acceptable (Egg Rasam) why can't fish in sambar? Listen, unless you are one of those who prefer to stick to familiarity and you are not food adventurous, I don't see why you wouldn't try this Fish Sambar. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. I made this fish sambar and we had a ball of a time tucking in alongside rice. Its by the way my invention. I really wanted to cook something different and at the moment of time staring at the ingredients, particular at dhal/lentil (Mutton Dhal Curry, Sambar & Tanni Saar) and Indian Mackerel/Tenggiri (Malaysian Indian Fish Curry & Bengali Yogurt Fish Curry), I basically did it. Fried tumeric mixed fish tipped into dhal and brinjal gravy. Would you try?

Back again bouncing back to stingray/ikan pari. Remember, call you recall my previous recipe Ikan Pari/Stingray Sambal? Yes? No. no. Not again the same recipe again please. Another style, yet, crucially, any Malaysian dish for the matter must be, potentially, spicy sauce based or call it sambal (Sambal Udang/Prawn, Belacan Fish Sambal, Nyonya Fish Sambal & Grilled Fish Sambal Stuffed). Of course obviously then, chilli is the main highlight for sambal, always and forever (Chilli Soy Fish, Fried Kembung Assam Sauce & Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf), this Stingray Spicy Sauce too basically showcases spiciness, additionally the combination of our local herbs makes its tastes even more interesting. Oh, don't forget pairing Stingray Spicy Sauce alongside lime or lemon wedges for that tinge of tanginess (Pompret/Bawal Hitam Soy Sauce & Grilled Salmon). Enjoy everyone!

Vegetarians, this Mee Rojak Vegetarian is from me to you. In fact, even non-vegetarians I bet will love this Mee Rojak. Not a big deal anyway. If you still insist on meat eating, add some cooked shredded chicken, pork, beef or whatever you are gamed for (Laksam Kelantan). But by far, nevertheless, Mee Rojak is 100% purely and totally a vegetarian noodle dish (Corn Soup & Curry Mee Vegetarian). Pictures of Mee Rojak obviously as you have already noted is? But I can assure you that recipe is as good as Nava K. Okay? Okay. What's mee rojak then? Gravy made from potato, peanuts and vegetable stock, tipped over yellow noodles and boiled egg, taugeh, tofu pok and mint leaves assembled.

What's in store for our cooking today? Oh-well-well. I'm going to introduce to you another noodle dish (Mee Rebus, Curry Mee Vegetarian & Hokkien Mee). From the state of Kelantan, remember Nasi Dagang? Laksam is basically, as I have already said, a noodle dish. A soupy curry type dish. Of course, as always, I must tell you that there's various versions to a bowl of Laksam, additionally, there's no right and wrong formula on its cooking technic and preferred ingredients. Still, essentially, we must get it right with the basics. For this laksam, we should potentially get it right on its fish-coconut milk broth (Home Made Curry Mee), and the rest, meaning, type of noodles and topping and garnishes are as per your choice (Malaysian Fried Mee, Penang Prawn Mee & Lamb Pho). So, what are you waiting for? Wouldn't you wanna dive into this creamy, spicy and aromatic broth, generously ladled over noodles and garnished with ginger torch bud? I reckon you must.

The return of prawns? Of course. Basically because I had to finish up the about 10 prawns still in my fridge. These batter coated, fried to utter puffy and crispy crunchy atop and juicy a single prawn inside Chinese style (Chinese Fried Rice, Kam Heong Prawns & Fried Shrimp Wantons) fritters? Chinese Prawn Fritters (Tamarind Prawn Curry, Penang Prawn Mee, Prawn Sambal & Devilled Prawns) without a doubt can be a teatime snack, or for party going around nibbling or please, feel free to having it as a side for rice. Oh, not to forget for pairing along some chilli sauce and/or mayonnaise. I'm done here. I'll see you soon yea.
