I love fish. H loves (only) fish. Give him fish any day and he'll be one talkative bumblebee. Give him red meat, he'll feel he's a man, YEAHHH.. while secretly wishing for fish. Fish grilled in Banana Leaves should be a good compromise, no?
Recipe is from here.
Modification made on lime (being substituted by lemon) and the disappearance of curry leaves. I think the fact I didn't use Roma tomatoes made a lot of difference too.
Verdict: I would have liked it to be spicier, but generally it was surprisingly good! I used to eat the Indonesian version of this, but the addition of Garam Masala actually works. It would definitely taste (or smell) better on grill. I shall give it another go next time I get my hands on some good filet. I forgot H doesn't eat with his hands. Only with fork and knife. Sigh!!!
Afterthought: maybe next time I'll do with my pestle & mortar toy to pound on the tomatoes, shallots & garlic. Some red chilli are needed. End it with a lime, and definitely longer time on the pan. Or grill.
