Here Rhodes your fish curry.

                   FISH CURRY

300 grms of fish slices (or any small fish )
3 tender ladies fingers, cut both ends and saut in a little oil.
1 big onion chopped
4 shallots slice into 2
4 pips of garlic slice into 2
3 green chillies   slit and cut across
1 ripe tomato chopped
1 lime sized ball of tamarind, (more if you like the curry sour ) soak in 3 cups of water. Squeeze out the juice.
cup thick coconut milk   ( optional )
2 sprig curry leaves.
2 heaped tbs fish curry powder + 1 tsp chillie powder
tsp fenugreek seeds
tsp mustard seeds
coriander leaves for garnishing
3 tbs of oil or more.
salt to taste
First apply little tumeric powder and salt to the slices. Keep aside.
Mix the curry powders with little water to form paste.
Put the pot on fire, add about 3 tbs of oil.
When the oil is hot add the fenugreek and mustard.
Now add the chopped onions, shallots, garlic, and stir fry.
Now add the chopped tomato and fry a little.
Now you add the green chillie, and curry leaves
The tomato will be a bit watery now.
Add the masala paste and keep on stirring till oil separates.
Now you pour the tamarind juice with enough water for your gravy.
Let the gravy boil for the raw smell to go.Add salt and taste for sourness.
By now oil will appear on top. Add the fish slices, and the ladies fingers.
The fish will be cooked in about 10 minutes. (test to see if it is cooked)
Add the coconut milk if using. Taste for salt
Just after one boil remove from fire and garnish with coriander leaves.

Note:   I like to add a slice or two of mango in the fish curry.The taste  will be awesome.

Spicy Fried Chicken

This is a very simple dish and very famous among the Indian families in Malaysia.


1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
Deep oil for frying


2 -3 tbs of onion paste
2-3 tbs of garlic paste
2-3 tbs of ginger 
1-2 tbs of lemon grass paste (optional)
1 ts tumeric powder
2-3 tbs of chilli powder
Salt to taste

If you cut the chicken in large pieces, then pierce the chicken using fork or slit with knife. Drain the chicken on a sieve.

In a bowl, add chicken and all the ingredients for marinating. Mix and set aside for a minimum of at least 1 hour.

On medium flame, pour oil in a wok. When the oil is hot, lower the flame a bit and start frying in batches. Drain over kitchen towel and serve.

(Note : if you want it to be crispier, before frying, dip the chicken into rice flour mixed with chilli powder and a little salt. Coat evenly and shake off excess flour and fry)

To give this fried chicken a umph……

2 large onions, sliced round
1" ginger, cut into strips
3 dried chillies, cut into pieces
1 stick cinnamon
2 star anise
2 cloves
1 tsp jeera
3 stalks curry leaves
1 tsp chilli powder (more if you want it more spicy)
Nalanai or butter or ghee for frying.

On a small flame, Fry all the above items together, add chilli powder at last. Take care not to burn the chilli powder. Fry until lightly brown, then add in fried chicken and mix well. Or alternatively you can use the onion mixture as a deco..

If you used rice flour, then do not mix together. Use the onion mixture as deco.

Put in a bowl add half cup of water, add salt, tamarind (it is okay to include the seeds) and chopped tomatoes. Using your hand, mix and squeeze all the ingredients together.

Then in a wok heat oil, add all the ingredients for frying. Lightly fry. Add the mixed ingredients and bring to boil. Add more water if you want, but do not make it watery. Taste for salt and tamarind. Shut down the flame and immediately add curry leaves and cover the pot.

Drink it hot. You can leave out tomato if you don't want. If you don't like oily, then leave out the frying mixture


2.  Naandu (Crab) Rasam (fantastic esp those who have chest cold)Smile

Every ingredients as above base mixture (only use tomatoes and frying if you want otherwise it is tasty on its own)

Take crab claws. Smash them up with a pestle. (for the juices from crab to blend in the rasaam) Put the crabs with curry leaves/coriander leaves, 1 cm chopped ginger in a wok with 1 glass of water and bring it to boil until the claws are cooked, then add the spices mixture. water and bring to boil. Add curry leaves and close. Again add water when possible but should not be too watery. Drink hot.

Sometimes my dad adds 1 tsp of chili pdr and masala pdr to give a spicyness.

3. Poondu Sothy

1 ts fennel seeds
1 ts black peppercorns
1 whole garlic, no need to peel
2 shallots, no need to peel
Curry leaves

The above pounded and set aside. Add a teaspoon or two water for moisture and easy pounding. Do not add more water.

Curry leaves
Dried chilli
cup thick coconut milk
2 cups thin coconut milk
1 green chilli

In a wok, over small flame, add oil, onions, halba, dried red chilli and curry leaves. Fry lightly. Add thin coconut milk and tomatoes. Add green chilli cut half and tumeric. Salt and tamarind (with or without seeds). Bring it to boil and tomatoes are cooked. Then add thick coconut and pounded mixture. Taste for seasoning.   Shut down the flame immediately after second boil. Add curry leaves and cover.
Goes well with rice and string hoppers

4. Paarpu Rasaam

Ingredients as Base Mixture minus coriander seeds

Stock from cooked paarpu (dhall). When you are cooking sambar, just before adding vegetables, remove at least - 1 cup of dhal stock.

Frying items

In a wok, add items for frying items. Add dhal stock, a little water, and chopped tomatoes. Wait for tomatoes to soften. Add rasaam mixture. Taste for seasoning. Add salt and more tamarind juice if you like. Shut down the flame and add curry leaves and close.

This goes well with rice and fried fish.

(Note: you can add or leave out coriander seeds and tomatoes if you wish)

The taste and beauty of the rasaams are two only, the amount of spices and most importantly you squeeze (pasanji) all the grounded items with your hand and squeeze out the juices.. Please wash your hand before doing this. Thanks.   Smile
