I don’t really have a recipe to share today, but I am going to show you some pictures of one of my favorite Nyonya curry dishes—salted fish curry or gulai kiam hu kut.
My second sister is here in the US and she brought me some instant curry paste for salted fish curry. We went to the market and gathered all the ingredients: eggplant, long beans, fresh pineapples, fried tofu puffs, and cabbage. Other ingredients include salted fish bones (kiam hu kut), shrimp, and coconut milk. With the instant paste, making a pot of salted fish bones curry was rather easy. In less than 30 minutes, we had a pot of aromatic and intensely flavorful curry…
The brand my sister bought is Action One which is made in Penang. The recipe can be found here. If you are in the US, you can buy instant curry paste for fish at AsianSupermarket365.com and the result will be equally rewarding.
