So I made a fish curry out of the bumbu chili paste I made earlier today and got the thumbs up not only from the Hubby, but also from myself. It was so good that I went and got a spoon so as to get more of the sauce with each bite. Definitely packed with flavour and suits seafood very well.

  • In a large frying pan, heat a couple tablespoons of oil, once heated add the paste and fry until it becomes slightly golden brown.
  • Add the stock and stir to mix.
  • Place in the lemon grass and leaves and let simmer just until it begins to thicken.
  • Add the fish and let cook for a minute or two, then gently flip over.
