Attempt this dish again without using premix as I don't really like the taste of brahim's premix sauce, using the chilli paste given by mom-in-law and some estimation on other spice, the dish turn out much better than using premix sauce...
300g batang fish fillet
2 tbsp chilli paste (MIL say there's chilli boh, buah keras, shallot, galangal, lemongrass and garlic in it)
1 tsp belachan
1 tbsp fish curry powder
1 cup of water mix with 1 tbsp assam paste - strain the juice
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup of water
1 tsp salt
- Fry chilli paste, curry powder and belachan till fragrant, add in assam juice and water. Add in perferred vegetables, bring to boil, add in fish fillet and let it simmer for a while. Lastly add in sugar and salt to taste. Dish and serve.
