There are times when you don’t want to spend too much time stir frying behind the stove, but just let the dish simmer while you can do other useful things (like watching cooking videos on YouTube).
So here is a simple simmer dish:
- 300 gram fish (Pangasius filet)
- 1 tomato
- 1 zucchini
- 1 carrot
- 2 spring onion
- 1 onion
- 1/2 white cabbage
- bamboo sprouts (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons curry powder / masala powder (I got this from an Indian friend)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- (about) 3 cups of water (or use coconut milk)
1 | Cut everything into bite size pieces. I added bamboo shoots as ingredient, but you can use any vegetable you have at home.
2 | Add oil in the pan. Stir fry the ingredients which can simmer long first: green onion, garlic, bamboo, onion, zucchini and fish. Fish can be put in later, because it is done really fast, but here I put it in first. Add 2 tablespoons of curry powder. Stir fry for 5 minutes.
3 | Add the rest of of the vegetables. Add 2 cups of water, till almost all vegetables are soaked in the water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Trust your feeling about the salt and pepper. Actually, I have no idea how much salt I used. Add salt little by little and taste.
4 | Simmer for 10 minutes and your fish curry (soup) is done! To make it more creamy and thick, you can coconut milk instead of water.
5 | Serve with rice.
