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!!
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
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.
