Oh wow Sophie! Thank you for this recipe! I didn't have fish but i used squid with this batter and it turned out beautiful!

I had to add a little more salt and pepper because in my confusion I'd forgotten to marinade the squid first and the result was bland. But otherwise it fried beautifully golden brown! I don't even know if it would stay crisp for a long time, the stuff was finished up real quick (4 medium sized squid rings).

Will try this for prawns tomorrow :E

Welcome learningcooking and biscotti!

Can...chicken or fish curry...it makes not much difference since it's only 1/2 teaspoon. Happy you all like it.

hey Coxiella!

Bzzzzz..like a bee. I drop by everyday but as always...SPEECHLESS...everybody's baking skill is getting better and better.

Did your sesame sweet bun yesterday for today's breakfast. I love the idea of a flower shaped bun so fill it with red bean paste ( the paste was meant for your spiral pandan pastry but haven't got to it yet :lol: ) and do this.



This is for tea today, just bake.

Sophie,

Lovely breads. I hope you liked the sesame sweet buns Smile

Is that cinnamon rolls? Very inviting with the nice glaze.

Coxiella

Love the bread. Very soft and fluffy. As good as the 'pai pau' (Jerseymom) and 'another basic sweet bread' (hugbear). All are keepers.

Hai Jerseymom !

I'm still using melted apricot jam for glazing...cheaper and tastier. My two legged ants at home were attracted to the stickiness and sweetness ( apricot jam ) and ran away with 2/3s of the whole bake in one sitting. :lol:

Hi Sophie, i dun hve any curry powder at home so can I omit or subsitute with other seasoning? Do I've season the fish with salt and pepper or squeeze lemon juice over it to remove the sandy smell? I'm using the Frozen Sutchi Fillet which I bought fm NTUC. Thx
