Malaysian Fish Head Curry Recipe: Just How Is This Dish Made?

With fresh ingredients such as candlenuts, coconut milk, laksa leaves, galangal, tamarind pulp, cincaluk (a salty shrimp base sauce) and lemongrass mixed together with onions and lime juice.

From Humble Beginnings, Straight To Your Plate

Its origins may surprise you; first used for cooking during the colonial times, it is believed that locals used fish head as they could not afford to purchase a whole fish. As the British did not enjoy eating the head of the fish, the locals benefited from its rich flavor by using them in their curries. Another version of the story explores its origins in India and how it inspired the Peranakan variant of fish head curry.
