How Our Recipes Kits Work

We provide spices:

  • Malaysian Curry Powder - Salt Free

Your shopping list:

tbsp RawSpiceBar’s Malaysian Curry Powder
sunflower oil
pineapple, peeled, quartered, cored and cut into 1cm-thick slices
palm sugar
tsp tamarind syrup
coconut milk
fresh ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
french beans, trimmed, boiled for 4 minutes and refreshed
large or 12 small fish fillets


  • 1.

    Put all the ingredients for the spice paste in the bowl of a food processor and work to a paste; you may need to add a little sunflower oil – up to two tablespoons – to help it along.

  • 2.

    Heat the oil in a large wok on a medium flame. Add the spice paste and cook, stirring continuously, for 10-20 minutes, until it turns a deep red; if it starts to catch on the bottom of the pan, just add a little water.

  • 3.

    Tip the pineapple into the pan, cook for five minutes, then stir in the palm sugar, tamarind, coconut milk, ginger and a half-teaspoon of salt, and simmer gently for three minutes. Stir in the beans, then lay the fish fillets skin side up on top of the sauce. Add enough water so the fish is just immersed in liquid (you should need about 400ml), then gently press the fillets down into the sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook for five minutes, until the fish is done; make sure the simmer is very gentle and do not stir, otherwise the fish will flake. Carefully lift the fish from the sauce, so it doesn’t break up, and serve on plain boiled rice with lots of the sauce spooned on top.
