Fried Fish Green Curry ( Masak Lemak Ikan Goreng )

Tonite I decided to cook "Masak Lemak Ikan Goreng" which is my family's favourite. My hubby does not like the conventional Masak Lemak with unfried fish but he loves this very much. The recipe is my mum's speciality and always impress guests from other state of Perak. The photo above does not reflect the true color, which is actually light bright green. See the recipe below.

The main dish is accompanied by Malay Style Kailan and Deep Fried Squid, which are all my family's favourite.

Here is the recipe for "Masak Lemak Ikan Goreng":
