>Sweet and Hot Curry with Fried Tilapia and a Raw Date and Coconut Dessert
>White Raddish curry… I’d run if I were you! Haha. I decided to try this dish out because I bought a big raddish from Carrefour, being cheap and all that, but I didn’t cook this the normal way that I use to eat it. Mom does it in soup style, peppered soup with carrots and pork ribs. That’s the way I’m used to but I decided to experiment and turned out to be a very unique curry I’ve tasted so far.It turned out to be a hot and sour curry, I used the last remaining tamarind in the fridge and thought it would be a nice accompaniment with the fried Tilapia I had thawing on the counter.
Interesting combo. That’s all I have to say. I was quite happy eating them separately. Think next time I’ll stick to how I normally have it, peppered soup with carrots and pork ribs! YUM.
On a brighter, happier and sweeter note, I found a bottle of coconut milk at the back of the fridge and thought I’d better use it up. It still tasted fine so I thought I’d experiment with another raw dessert (no cooking or baking) having read so many blogs about raw food and the health benefits of eating raw including raw desserts! How could I not try it?? I’m keen to moving to raw desserts and foods but I have to be careful of indigestion (as I have experienced it before)!
I used date paste, coconut milk and desiccated coconut. Mixed it all in with no measurement cup involved. Mix and match as I went and ensured a thick consistency throughout so that I can form balls. After forming the balls, I then coated them in more desiccated coconut.
