Singgang Ikan


I am taking this opportunity to wish all of you RAMADHAN MUBARAQ. May ALLAH grant us with good health so that we can perform our ibadah the best way possible. Amin. My sincere apologies to all if there's any wrong doings or sayings from my side.

Whenever I said that I am not confident to cook Pindang or Singgang, I'll get simillar feedbacks....Laa senang je ma, nak masak singgang tu. Main lebur je... Translation : It's very easy to cook Singgang. Just chuck everything in the pot! Huhuhu... if only before this, I am that confident, then it'll be a different story now.

Anyway, finally I braved myself to cook Singgang last week. At first nobody touches the Singgang as I had served dinner with sambal and a few other dishes. Hubby ate rice with sambal. Then when he's done eating, he took a sip of the Singgang. A sip after another till 70% of the Singgang is gone! Wahhhh, that makes me a very happy wife! Hahaha... the Singgang wasn't perfect though because I had put in too much salt. Hmm how can that be because I am normally not a salty person! I guess, because I am just nervous.... hahaha..baikkk punya cover line.... Thanks to Kak Liza for the simple yet delicious recipe. I took it from her Senangnya Memasak cooking book....

Ingredients :

Ikan selar
3 cloves garlic ~ sliced
2 cm galanggal ~ sliced thinly
2 cm fresh turmeric ~ sliced thinly
5 pieces dried tamarind skin (depends on size)
4 cups water
salt to taste
Bird eye chillie (I had used red chillie)

Method : (my way)

1. Place all the ingredients in a pot, except the fish.
2. When the soup starts boiling, add in the fish.
3. Once the fish is cooked, remove from heat.
4. Ready to serve.

Have a nice day!
