Alagappa's Curry Fish Head

It has been ages since I cooked curry fish head Indian style.  I managed to get quite a huge one from Jusco Kinta City and cheap too...this Ikan Merah fish head costs RM19.  I am not good at cooking curries so I decided to get a packet of Alagappa's Serbuk Kari Ikan and used the printed recipe at the back of the sachet :) and bluff my way from the kitchen to the dinner table LOL!  And whoa, surprisingly the recipe turned out good .  I added more tamarind juice to the curry for a more tangy flavor.   Very appetizing and I slurped down every drop of the curry hahaha so much for eating healthy * wink

WB say it tasted more like chinese Assam Fish Head Curry...hahaha
whatever long as it taste GOOD and homecooked curry fish head
is cheaper and healthier msg for sure !
