Especially for you…

Well, I guess everybody knows by now that my daughter is home for the holidays…and I’m back in the kitchen trying my very best to let her eat all the things that she loves while she is home. On Friday, since we do not usually eat meat on that day, I decided to cook some fish head curry…

My brother-in-law from Bintulu gave us some fish head sometime ago and it was still sitting in the freezer…

…so I could just use that. I still had a packet of the A1 Mountain Glove curry paste (seafood) and a can of evaporated milk in my pantry and I could get the serai (lemon grass) and curry leaves from my garden and we had some Bombay onions in the house…

I took one Bombay onion, peeled and chopped it until it was really fine…and I went to the market in the morning to get the other ingredients that I needed – a pineapple (which I had to peel and cut into chunky slices), some ladies’ fingers, brinjal and tauhu pok (puffed soyabean cake)…

I also had a packet of bean curd sticks in the house but decided against adding that as my daughter does not really care for it. She says they taste like plastic! LOL!!!

Soon I was ready to roll. All I had to do was to fry the chopped onion in a bit of oil, add a bit of sugar to caramelise it and the serai (lemon grass) crushed at the ends and half of the curry leaves followed. Once fragrant, I added the curry paste, stirring it thoroughly to mix it with the ingredients that I had put in earlier. Then I added a bit of the evaporated milk and once, that had started boiling, I added some water before putting in the fish and the rest of the stuff and some more evaporated milk in order that I could have a richer gravy, and soon the fish head curry was ready…

I sent the photo via mms to BDQ and she ended up tearing her hair out! Hahahahahaha!!! I forwarded it to Clare too and she commented in an earlier post asking me what that was and it looked like she could eat at least three plates of rice with something like that. Well, my daughter loved it a lot and said that it was even nicer than Sheraton’s. Boy, am I flattered?

Would you care to have some too?…..

  1. Mr. STP, this looks delicious! My husband also likes to cook Thai style curry fish on Fridays (we don’t eat meat on Fridays also). We will try your version (perhaps with a different curry paste) with the evaporated milk next time.

    Can’t get A1 Mountain Globe in the states? It’s available in Australia – more or less the same price, 3 something but in AUD. Hehehehehe!!! These days, I use evaporated milk in all my curries. Supposedly healthier than santan, but Sarawak laksa, no choice – have to use santan.

    1. so when u didn’t post any on food means kena throw away one lah?

      Sometimes. Or maybe I was cooking something I’d posted on before…or something not so special, not worth bragging about…or the old lady was doing the cooking! LOL!!!
