Easy Fish Curry Recipe @

Fish curry is one of the most loved dish in Singapore especially fish head.

While there are variations  of fish curry originated from each state of India, mostly they used fresh spice mix unlike here, we used a ready made fish  curry powder (masala) that  was available in  the market.

During the olden days, we  have to get our own coconut milk by squeezing fresh grated coconut with water then strain.  But that was a thing of the past since a tetra pack coconut milk is being used now.

With hectic and busy lifestyle, most  women go for a quick and readily available ingredients.  Even now, you could find semi cooked  fish curry.  No peeling or grinding of  onion etc, just open the packet, heat it and add fish slices.    Your meal are ready in minutes.

My Easy Fish Curry did not use coconut milk but you could include about a cup of coconut milk if you like.  Also if you like sourish curry, add a bit more tamarind.

Besides taken with rice, this Easy Fish Curry goes well with flatbread, dosa or bread.

Tomato Fish Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A different fish  gravy that uses a  lot of onion and tomatoes.  Tomato Fish  is a milder version and was slightly thicker than  regular  fish curry.

It is better to use a meaty white fish with less bones like red snapper, toman, thread fin, sea bass and many more.  You can  buy a whole fish then request the the stall to slice it for you.

After cleaning, the fish is coated with  lemon juice, chili powder and turmeric before it goes to frying pan for shallow frying.

Nest step, we are going to prepare the sauce by frying onion until it turns soft, adding chili powder  as per your liking  and turmeric. Add in tomato  and cooks until it  is mushy. this will take about 10 minutes. Top with water and bring to  a boil.

After the sauce is thicken, slide in the fried fish.  Allow to simmer for a few minutes before removing from heat.  Tomato Fish is ready to be served with  steaming hot rice or chapati.

Sardine Recipe  @

For many years, I have abstained myself from taking any dish with canned sardine. But that had changed  ever since I have tasted a fantastic recipe cooked by our chef in my previous workplace.

For the recipe below, I had used canned sardine in tomato sauce and lemon juice to get rid of its unpleasant smell.  It turned out fabulous and quite pleasing to our palate though it can't never be the same from what I had tasted before. You may discard the sauce and use only the  fish but this is personal choice.

They are great serve with rice,  paratha, naan or bread.

Hot & Sour Soup Recipe @

Hot and sour soup is a light and filling dish, you can use any meaty fish such as thread fin, sea bream or mackerel if you intend to add the fish in your soup.  It has tangy and spicy flavor which can be adjusted to your liking.

Since the fish doesn't need longer time to cook, quickly remove from heat once the fish is cooked. Hot & Sour Soup is a warming, satisfying and flavorful meal that goes well with rice.

Fish Vindaloo Recipe @

After searching through the net about  Fish Vindaloo , I came across few versions of making this dish, one with tamarind and another one without.

Tried this  Fish Vindaloo with tamarind and it turns out slightly darker tone compared with the other style. Overall it has tangy and spicy taste and not so overpowering with vinegar, my family loved them so much.

This is what I have used, you could adjust the quantity of chili and vinegar according to your taste. After all cooking is about experimenting and getting the taste right to our taste bud. If you want to try, here is the recipe :

Fish is always my family's favorite food, especially if it is simmered in hot and spicy gravy like this one. For a long time I have not cooked this dish, so my son requested to prepare the fish using bird's eye chili. Preferably selecting less bony fish if you are feeding small children and it turns out very spicy but delicious. One could fry the fish first or simply cook in gravy - either way it is superb.


4-5 slices fish
15 bird's eye chili (adjust to your taste)
1 cup coconut milk
1 and 1/2 cup water
1 inch fresh turmeric root
1 medium lime obtain the juice
2 lemon grass bruised


1. Wash the fish with lemon juice, drain.

2. Blend together bird's eye chili and turmeric with some water.

3. Pour water, coconut milk, blended ingredients, lemon grass and salt in a pot. Stir until boiling.

4. Slide in the fish and bring to boil until fish is cooked.

5. Remove from heat, add lime juice and it is ready to eat.

My kid is a great fan of fish whether fried, baked or stewed does not really matter to him as long as it's spicy he loved it. This dish uses chopped tomato and onion and a bit of chili powder. The fish is semi-fried but could be done without frying too. Using red snapper or other variety like sea bass or any meaty fish is perfect for this recipe. If more gravy is needed just add more water.


500g (1 lb) fish slices
2 tomatoes chopped
2 big onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon ginger paste
2 tablespoons chili powder (adjust to taste)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
salt to taste
lemon juice
1/2 to 1 cup water


* Marinate cleaned fish with turmeric, salt and lemon juice for 15 minutes.

* Heat the oil, shallow fry the fish. Remove and place on absorbent paper.

* Heat 3 tablespoons of oil, add onion and fry until light brown.

* Add ginger and garlic paste, cook until fragrant.

* Now add the tomato and salt, cook until tomato turns soft, add chili powder, tomato ketchup and water, bring to a boil.

* Add the fried fish and simmer for a few minutes, remove from heat.

* Serve hot.

Fish Recipe @

My children love to eat fish but preferred the one with less bones like threadfin, sea bass or red snapper.   It was safer for young kids to have boneless fish  or fish fillet  unless you have time to remove the bones before feeding them 

After having curry dishes, decided to cook this dish using soy sauce and bird's eye chili. The eating session ended with smiling face and it is finger licking good. Using fish fillet for this  Fish Tempra   recipe.

This dish is a grilled fish in coconut sauce.  Ikan Panggang Santan is cleaned then grill under a gas or electric one but I used a flat non stick pan to cook both side of the fish. Mullet, bream, snapper and other type of small fish can be used. After preparing the sauce just put in the fish for a few minutes in order to fully absorb the spices. Tightly wrapped the fish with banana leaves if available and grill until the leaves turn brown. Kindly reduce the amount of chili paste to suit your preference.

Cooked this favourite dish to be taken with naan. This Fish Curry is free from coconut milk but tasted wonderful. The chili powder can be adjusted to suit your taste but mine very spicy and tangy, the way my family like it. If you want thicker gravy add less water, best eaten with plain rice, naan, prata or even dosa.

Asam pedas is one of 'must have' dishes in every Malay household. The gravy is very spicy and a bit sour in taste. Using blended dry chili, tamarind juice and fish such as stingray, snapper, mackerel or threadfin as its ingredient. Best served with plain rice or even with bread.

This is really simple and easy recipe.  Spicy Sardine  uses canned sardines in tomato sauce. With addition of onion, tomato and spices, it turns out really delicious. Sometimes I do prepare this dish on lazy weekend. Kindly adjust the chili used according to your preference. It is best served with hot steaming rice, capati or bread.

Spicy Nadan Tomato Fish Recipe @

Instead of normal fish curry, I tried this  Spicy Nadan Tomato Fish recipe by Roselle which is a hit with my family. It has sweet, slightly hot and tangy taste the way I like it. Sweetness comes from the onion used and recommended that you lightly fry the fish before adding to the gravy.

If possible try to use bigger fish with less bone and thick flesh. Adding chili powder and tamarind can be adjusted to your liking. This recipe produces rather thick curry but if you want more gravy, do add more water but not too much.
