Ikan Selar Kuning Recipe ala Bersih? (Yellow Banded Scad with Turmeric ala Clean recipe)

No no no, this dish has got nothing to do with 'bersih'. It just happened to be yellow in colour because of the turmeric powder I used. I love the sourish gravy and would flood my rice with it. The fish I used in the above photo is Selar Kuning (Yellow Banded Scad). I pre fried the fish before pouring the gravy over it so that this wonderful dish taste better.

Here is my Ikan Selar Kuning Bersih recipe! ha ha ha!

Ikan Selar Kuning (Yellow Banded Scad), 5 pcs
Turmeric, 1 teaspoon
Vinegar, 3 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Garlic, 3 cloves, smashed
Fresh chilly, 1pc, for garnishing, cut into slices
Vegetable oil

Deep fry the Yellow Banded Scad fish in hot oil until they turned a little crispy. Take out the fish and drain away excess oil. Put a little oil in wok and saute garlic until fragrant. Add a little water, turmeric, vinegar, salt and sugar to taste. Bring to a boil and pour the gravy over the fried fish. Garnish with fresh chilli slices before serving.
Simple and delicious!

I like deep fried selar kuning. But pouring the gravy over the fish - would it make the fish lose its crispness? Then have to eat while it's hot, right?
