    Assam Fish or known as spicy and sour fish is a great dish in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Everyone in these places – would try the dish at least once or twice in their lifetime. And now, i am really in dire to have one!

    Preamble … Assam Pedas, or literally “spicy and sour,” is a classic dish. Ask any home cooks in Malaysia–Malay, Chinese, or Indian–and you are bound to get various recipes for Assam Pedas. Everyone has their own interpretation for this favorite dish and there are endless adaptations; suffice it to say, it’s sour, fiery hot, and tastes extraordinarily satisfying.

    For today – we are going to make a little modification – which is – using bawal putih or white promfret for assam fish.
