For the past 2 years,I notice I gained a lots of weight.My mom keep advised me to eat brown rice instead of steamed white rice.I can't live without rice or noodles so is daughter Mishu.Mishu have started measuring her food portion.These days I tried to collaborate with hubby and Mishu dinner by eating brown rice and steamed white rice every other days.Beside rice,I must also needs to cut down spicy food intake..I still have plenty of ready packed spicy paste like assam curry,samba and etc in the fridge still within the shelf life.So why not use it before expired to cook something delicious for my dinner.I used Assam curry paste to make Assam Cod Fish Curry with plenty of vegetables..This spicy dish is heavenly delicious eating with brown rice!! I wonder how and when can I lost weight by eating this yummy delicious meal for consecutive 2 dinners and 2 lunches?? **my ideal weight lost is still in the wonderland if I keep eating this kind of meal..lol!**
