Fish Head Curry Mamak Style

This Mamak Style Fish Head Curry is our favourite curry...a bit tangy and spicy. And I will normally add in lots of okras, tomatoes and longbeans. Sometimes I do add shrimps and squid for the hubby. And today I added in Giant Octopus brings the curry to the next level. This time I made it a bit spicy and tangy.  I used my favourite LC pot . Can cook and serve in it at the same time. Pretty favourite colour. This LC was given as a gift from my son and his wifey. This curry is very tasty and very much like those served in Mamak Restaurant . I am just kidding okay but it is really good.

I added octopus tentacles to the curry

after the curry paste and oil has separated, and in the fish head
Just the aroma can truly make me hungry
