DIRECTIONS

  • Whatever fish is used, it can be cut into small cubes or slices before frying.
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy frying-pan, and carefully brown the fish in it.
  • Meanwhile, in another frying-pan, fry the chopped shallots (or onion) and garlic until tender.
  • Stir in the chilli, ginger, turmeric, coriander, lemon grass, salam, salt and tamarind water.
  • Let this mixture simmer for 10 minutes, then put in the fish.
  • Cover, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the santen and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Serve hot, garnished with very thin slices of cucumber and chopped mint.
  • (Alternatively, put the cucumber and mint into the kare itself for the last 2 minutes of cooking.) Incidentally, the same care can be made with prawns.
  • There is no need to fry the prawns separately; but fry them in the mixture of onion, etcetera for a few minutes before you put in the tamarind water.
