Salted Fish Curry

I been dying to have salted fish curry for awhile but to get a good quality of salted fish is quite challenging here in US and A. While ago when I visited Asian market a I found pre-packed croaker salted fish at the chiller self.At first I was skeptical to buy the salted fish coz I never but croaker salted fish in dry form.I dunno how it's tste or the texture or it's this fish suitable to cook in curry or not.Usually I bought salted fish soaked in oil from Thailand.Well,since I miss salted fish curry ,I might give a try,right? It's turn up this Croaker Salted Fish Curry is really delicious nice and sturdy!!









Ingredients:
I pack Croaker Salted Fish,about 6 pieces or any other type of salted fish available,wash and cut
3 tbsp sambal-belacan-paste(add more if you like spicy)
6 tbsp curry powder (Baba's or Burung Nuri's brand prefer)
2 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
1 cube shrimp bouillon*optional*
1/2 lb string bean,wash and cut
2 Chinese eggplant,wash and cut small
1 lb okra,wash and remove the top before cut
1 sprig curry leave
1 can coconut milk,400ml
1 cup whole milk
2 tbsp oil
Method:
1:Heat deep skillet or medium size stock pot at medium heat with oil.Add in sambal-belacan-paste ,curry leave and curry powder ,fry for 1 minute before add in coconut milk and milk.
2:Add in cut salted fish and vegetables.When the gravy is rolling boil add in seasoning .Mix all the ingredients well,let it cook for another 10-15 minutes or cook before remove from heat.(If you like extra gravy add more milk)
3:Check the seasoning before dish out.Serve warm with rice or bread.
Croaker Salted Fish
Note:
You can use any type of vegetable like tomato,cabbage pepper and etc.

I tried the sambal you gave me and they were so good. I bet it will sell like hot cakes if you bottle it and sell it. If you cook it again maybe I can buy to tubs from you :) I love fish curry but I am not a fan of salted fish curry. Maybe because of the salted fish smell :)

I'm glad you like the sambal:)well,I have to wait after Winter in order to cook more sambal on my BBQ pit outdoor..I will remember to send you some then.To cook for sell is "No No" for me.as you know making sambal take too much time and work which I don't have the energy to do it.Just make for fun and ourself is OK. Oh this salted fish is not salty or fishy at all..Maybe you should try if you like salted fish.
