READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ida ku zaifah

This is one of my favourite cuisine. It taste delicious due to sweet and sour pineapple flavour and curry mixture. Serve on a bed of hot plain rice, malay style fried fish or chicken, salted fried fish or hard boiled salted egg and SAMBAL BELACAN .

Really like this recipe. Although I left out the sugar as I thought it would be too sweet and added a spoon of peanut butter and a chopped fresh chili. So in the end it was more of a satay sauce.
