Assam Fish Curry is one of my favourite curry for many reasons. Firstly, it is not only hot but also addictively sour as well thanks to the tamarind (or better known locally as assam/asam). Secondly it is healthy with lots of vegetables (lady’s fingers, tomatoes and eggplants) and lastly, it does not contain coconut milk – hence relatively low-fat compared to other curries and keeps better in our tropical climate.

I cheated with instant fish curry paste so this curry was whipped up in under 30 minutes – faster than the time needed to cook the rice in the rice cooker. I have made curry paste from scratch before, and it IS tedious, so I am really grateful for the convenience of instant curry mixes, especially on nights when I only have less than 30 minutes to cook dinner.

  1. Hi Wiffy, I love Assam fish!! May I share with you the Assam paste brand that I use? It’s Assam Pedas Ikan under IKAN BRAND. Available at supermarkets n provision shops. Green n yellow packaging with picture of 3 fishes. It’s instant with a rich spicy sour taste. No need to add extra Assam. I use it with stir fried prawns too. Try it!
