This is one of my favourite curry dishes and when I saw the pack of instant curry sauce by Mak Nyonya, I knew I had to buy one to try. I wanted to buy 2-3 packs but Hubby thought we should try one pack first. Anyways, this Mak Nyonya instant fish curry sauce is a keeper!!!

Don’t the vegetables look good in the curry paste?
Here’s the final outcome:
Sigh…I think we were both sad when we finished the curry LOL
