There are many variations of nasi ulam (Malay herb rice) and Nasi Kerabu stands out with its signature blue rice, naturally coloured with dried butterfly pea flowers.

This assam fish head is an Indian curry with Chinese influence that is popular both in Singapore and Malaysia. The curry uses Indian spices but made lighter and sourish with the addition of tamarind paste and pineapple. Fresh herbs like laksa leaves and torch ginger flower heightens the ‘assam’ flavour. The curry is light, spicy sour that goes well with a hot bowl of steaming rice. A little tip, you can make extra portion of the sambal and freeze. It keeps well in the freezer for 3 months. This reduces the prepping time for the next Assam Fish Head meal.
