FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized HOMECOOKED MALAYSIAN FISH & PRAWN CURRY 17 January 2007

Made a shortcut Malaysian Fish & Prawn Curry for dinner – using a packet sauce. It had an expiry date of Sep 2006 (which mum helpfully wrote BIG on the front, but that still didn’t help me!) but I used it anyway, haha. No stomach ache afterwards, so I guess it was fine 😉 According to the packet, A spicy, ready-to-cook Malaysian curry sauce with coconut milk, coriander and spices.

Soooooo easy to cook (and clean up) – just dump everything in a pot and add the sauce and some water.. then simmer for 15 mins. That’s it! My choice of ingredients:

White fish (I used Ling)
Prawns
Tomato
Red Chilli
Onion
Coriander
Garlic

It was spicy, tasty, hearty, and so satisfying. Made enough for 4 so I can have it again tomorrow night!

Bubble bubble, toil and trouble…

      Hehe adding more coconut milk makes it creamy 😛 I also let it simmer a while so the water boils off!

        Hi Bev,

        I don’t have a LJ account, so I just browse anonymously :p I remember you from ages ago at Gemz. Anyway, the logo looks kind of similar – I think I’ve seen those sauces at IGA Market City before.

        Cheers,

          You should sign up to LJ! But it’s so addictive 😉

          I’m going to check out IGA when I’m there.. thanks for the tip, hopefully they’ll have some of those sauces

    That looks delicious! I don’t think we carry that brand in Los Angeles, but now I think I’m going to check my grocery store for curry mixes. Yum!

    hey! asian food! well done! looks really yummy. i always like your food pics

    i really like Brahmin’s Rendang sauce, makes really good rendang everytime. i usually add onions in there to make the sauce thicker and tastier.

      It’s the closest I come to Asian food cooking.. I can’t do it from scratch, it’s too hard!

      I’m going to try and find Brahmin’s sauces, they’re so good!

    I like how your mom tried to help you and it still didn’t work. I also like you blatantly ignore food expiry dates.
