made a really quick simple dinner for 3pax this evening on 24.4.2016. ^^
it was simple & quick because all i did was to use ready paste & sauces.
i had a small 1/2 fish head leftover from the day when i did a 8pax curry rice lunch for my primary school friends.
so today i used a chilli brand fish head curry paste & cooked the 1/2 fish head with some yellow onion, ocra, eggplants, tomato. will share the recipes here on another post, but basically –
just fry the paste with curry leaves & onions, then add ocra, then add fish head & egg plant & coat, then add coconut milk & chicken or fish stock & cover to steam the fish head, then add tomato.
i cooked another 3 small dishes. it looked like a lot of food for 3pax, but actually fish head was very small (like 450g more bones than meat), & the 3 other dishes all very small quanitites. 🙂
for squid ink, just stirfry the ink sacs with cut chilli padi, garlic & yellow onions in butter. add some stock & reduced, then add sotong seasoned with fish sauce & pepper. last add corflour with oyster sauce.
for the ocra & long beans, i used ready bottled sauces.
for long beans i used gimson nonya sauce.
this sauce is so very good, my daughter liked it (the dish) best of all.
long beans take time to cook, so just fry garlic in oil & nonya sauce paste, add long beans, then add stock & cover. when long beans are cooked, reduce sauce further as desired to give a intense tasty dish. so good!
fot the chilli ocra, i used singlong sambal ikan bilis paste. basically done same way as long beans, but i added some yellow onions also.
very quick to prepare & shiok dinner la…
