Eat - Rotini Curry Rice with Fried Mackerel

Sorry about the poor resolution of the photo. I know i should take better pictures for the next posts. It was just a spontaneous lunch. and i added rice just because it was too salty hahaha.

So i'm gonna try to share this i hope it will work for you too. All the ingredients should just be measured by your taste and instinct. (i know, i will put the measurements for the next posts too)

Fried Mackerel
  1. Mix salt and pepper with crushed lemon basil and lemon water (this is important, u can use bilimbi or tamarind too, tamarind usually makes ur fish would look darker when it's fried.), then soak mackerel fillets and leave for about 20-30 minutes (you can make your curry pasta while waiting for this)
  2. Deep fry the mackerel until it gets brown.

Curry Pasta
  1. Put together 1 cup of coconut milk (or water if you prefer lower fat), salt, pepper, garlic, curry powder, paprika powder, garlic, shallot, lemon basil, and whatever you want to be in your curry.
  2. Boil your pasta (i had rotini) with the curry until it's well cooked and the curry should be thicker too.
Then add your fried mackerel to the curry. I added nori and lemon basil leaves because i love those two. If you are a beginner in the cooking world like i am, you should taste your curry first, if it's too strong then you can add rice to neutralize a bit. (automatically will add some carb fat in your belly too)

So that's my premier recipe on the blog. Hope i will learn better and better :)
