Mouth Watering Indonesian Fish Curry And Vietnamese Jasmine Rice Recipe At Home

Today I am going to share two continental recipes with you. They are Indonesian Fish Curry and Vietnamese Jasmine Rice. Both the dishes taste very delicious. The fish that I have used in making Indonesian Fish Curry is salmon. I chose salmon due to its amazing taste. However, It’s completely up to you which fish you want to use to make this. This recipe can be made by using sardine as well. But definitely use sea fish. The taste of sea fish adds an extra flavor to this dish. This fish curry goes best with any kind of rice item. Today I will be making Vietnamese Jasmine Rice which will go amazingly with this fish curry. In this rice item, I used jasmine rice. You can get it at any hypermarket. However, you can use any long grain rice if jasmine rice is unavailable at your place. Brown rice can also be used to make this recipe. So friends, let’s start of making these two recipes one by one.
