Kari Kepala Ikan Salmon – Salmon Head Curry

Livechat menu with Om @williamwongso this afternoon … Salmon Head Curry, Tahu Tek Surabaya and Es Cendol. Thank you again for those who have already watched it

Fish head curry is a dish in Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean cuisines with mixed Indian and Chinese origins. The head of a red snapper is stewed in a Kerala-style curry with assorted vegetables such as okra and eggplants. It is usually served with either rice or bread, or as a shared dish.

Kari kepala ikan, my Mom used to cooked this for us. Her kari kepala ikan is one of her best dishes, one of our favorite. Normally we use red or white snapper but I couldn’t find it here in my town, we need to order weeks before. So for this chat we decided to use what we have in my town.
