Salted Fish is home-cooked dish. It is not easily available at economy rice stalls or chinese a'la carte restaurants. Well, if you like it, you have to cook it at home. You have to get the salted fish bones before you gear to the whole process of cooking. You can get them at Old Town Market or Pasar Tani.

Cooking is easy like the normal curry fish head style except the process of soaking the salted fish and cleaning it takes a longer time. Add some small prawns, brinjal, long beans and some red and green chillies.

Just add this plate of lovely fruits and vege to combine with yummy curry salted fish. It is healthier to eat this way. Remember, your barley ice drink. My daughter complained that she only get to eat this once a year. I don't recommend this dish because it is an unhealthy food. Upon request by my family members, then I will add them to my monthly Dinner Menu. Really good with white rice.
