420. Fried Fish Balls with Spicy Gravy

This is quite a new recipe in my family. Surprisingly the children like it. Usually I cooked fish ball soup when I am lazy to spend too much time in the kitchen on a particular day.

Like today ha ha...

I asked Zu my eldest daughter to roast a chicken whilst I cooked this. Even Mak isah 'malas' nak ground the onions. I have seen Zu blend some ginger, red onions and garlic in my blender. She blended quite a lot and more than enough. And it was to cook a hot spicy gravy to eat with the roasted chicken later.

What I did was, I poured a little cooking oil onto a frying pan.

When boiled, I scooped some of the blended ingredients (ginger, red onions & garlic) which was enough to make some gravy, and poured into the frying pan.

Add 2 tablespoons of blended dried chillies or according to your taste.

Stir under moderate fire for 5 minutes while adding a little water.

Add a tablespoon of tomato sauce or more according to taste.

Add half a teaspoon of sugar or to taste.

Add salt to taste.

Pour on to the plate of fried fish balls (which are already fried in oil earlier).

Pour some cut 'daun bawang' for garnish.

Enjoy it with hot white rice.

Hello Claire, ha ha drooling... :D My daughter Noormy likes it too & later was asking me to cook this dish again the next day.

Small Kucing - that's pretty expensive. Mak isah can get these pretty small fish balls for RM2 a packet at a supermarket called 'Ta Kiong' over here.

You even can switch to others too like Sotong Balls or Crab balls eh.
