Coconut milk fish

This dish is actually called Masak lemak chili api in malay version. Can replace it with chicken, and others meat too. This is my own version where I use broccoli and mint as my vege. You can always replace the vege with others fruit vege and as per your liking. Most important the gravy and basic herbs is correct. Here the recipe

  7. Chili pepper
  8. Lemongrass
  9. Fish (can change to chicken n etc)
  10. Broccoli (optional)

  1. Marinate your fish before if you use fish. It’s not necessary to marinate them unless you going to dip fry (which is not necessary to dip is personal preference) prep all your ingredients and grind them well like you can see in the picture below

  2. This process is not a must unless you dip fry your meat.i post it Incase u follow the exact same can always get creative.fry your fish and then put aside
