Dear Thamil, do try this method also.



10 pieces dried fish, ( preferably with big bones ) cleaned and washed
150 grms brinjal sliced
50 grms boiled mochai
2 tbs fish curry powder, add little water to form a paste
1 lime-sized ba#ll of tamarind , extract juice with a cup of water
10 small onions, coarsely pounded
8 pips garlic, peel the skin
2 green chillies , slit in halves and quartered
4 tbs oil
tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
1 stalk curry leaves
salt to taste
cup coconut milk (optional )


Heat oil in a pot, add mustard, and fenugreek seeds.
When the popping stops, add the coarsely pounded onions, the garlic flakes,
And the curry leaves. Fry till the onions turn a little brown here and there.
Add the curry paste, the slit green chillies and fry until golden and fragrant. Stir in the tamarind juice,
And enough water to form the sauce. Add the cleaned dried fish, and let it boil on a medium heat. Then add the brinjal slices and the boiled motchi.
Let it boil on medium heat, till the oil shows on the surface of the sauce.
Taste for salt and remove from fire.
For those adding coconut milk, taste for salt, add the coconut milk, bring to the boil just once and remove from fire.

Note: Normally the dried fish curry will be a bit watery.

Heat the oil and saute the spices before adding the lemon grass and screw pine leaves.
Once fragrant, add the onions and keep stirring.
When the onions turn brown, add the chillie paste.
Fry till oil rises, add the cleaned fish, and tamarind juice.
Allow the fish to cook, add salt and sugar.
Lastly add the coconut milk, and let it cook dry.

My own tip... soak the pounded fish in boiling water.
Wash and clean, to get rid of the smell.

In a wok, add water and a little salt and allow to boil. Very Quickly blanch the lettuce and blanch in cold water. Remove and drain properly. The lettuce must be medium crisp. Arrange on serving plate

Then in a wok, add a dash of oil, oyster sauce, a dash of light soy sauce and a couple of tablespoons of water and mix well. Allow it to thicken.

Pour over the the lettuce. Deco with fried onions, garlic and red chilli. Serve hot and with steamed rice or with noodles.
