Gulai Tempoyak Ikan patin - Failed

 After having the delicious Guali Tempoyak Ikan Patin at Gerai Kak Mek, in Temerloh, Mamarazzi wanna try make pulak.

Papa says its easy.

Hence the other day when she saw the durian seller in the Pasar Malam selling tempoyak, she bought one container. RM5.

 Bought a bunch of Daun Kesum. People also call it daun laksa. English name is Vietnamese mint, Vietnamese cilantro, Cambodian mint and hot mint.

One bunga kantan(Ginger flower), Kunyit(tumeric) , cili padi (birds eye cili) and asam keping

 Lovely looking bunga kantan after sliced in two.

 One patin fish.

She blended the kunyit and cili padie together. the according to the recipe. Put three tablespoon of tempoyak into the pot with the blended ingredients. Add a bit of water. Dump in the Kantan flower and the daun kesum with the fish. Cooked till boiling......then....this where it gone wrong.


 why the gravy won't thicken??? so watery leh and tasted super sour though she didn't even add in the asam keping. Added some more cili padi and some salt...still taste like something is missing...

Oh well....eat asam fish la if like that....but even asam fish also failed...that's story is for next week la....

Till now she still scratching her head where the heck did it gone wrong???

A friend suggested maybe the Tempoyak was too old hence too sour...and Mamarazzi put in too much water to cook it.

Nevermind, I don't like to eat that spicy yellow dish anyway. I preferred these.. Yellow sweeeeet Nangka...yummmm.....Kaw Kaw LC , you want? I eat on your behalf ya....

  16. this is the tips that you should consider if you cook ikan patin gulai tempoyak... just blend chili with kunyit and then ketuk serai 3-4 batang... put all of the ingredients in the periuk then put tempoyak... mix it. if you like thick soup then add another tempoyak. if it is too sour just put sugar there. but it is very nice you just put new tempoyak, it taste sweet... then after you think that your kuah will be thick enough, just cook it with slow fire. put some salt and taste it... (don't need kantan and daun kesum)...

  17. When buying tempoyak also need to look for nice tempoyak meow.

    Some vendor add other things in the tempoyak and it's not all pure durian hence different taste.
