Curry Fish with Mix Vegetables #SundaySupper

Happy Father’s Day to all macho Daddies!
I feel extremely excited as this is my first posting for the #SundaySupper with a Special theme – Perfect #Sunday Supper Father’s Day Menu!
Origin from a country that rich of varieties of cultures from the mix races of Malays, Chinese, Indians, etc - we are always explored to other races signature dishes or menus especially spicy food.  Curry is one of them and become one of my dad’s favorites too!  As the chef at home, my mom always explores her cooking skill with different type of curry.  Curry fish is one of it and remember my Dad used to mix the curry gravy with his white rice.  Even though he has left us when I was 18 but is still fresh in my mind how delicious it when Dad feed me with a spoon of rice mixed with curry gravy when I was as young as 5-years old, my first attempt on spicy curry.   From there onwards, I also have a special “attractions” on curry too!  Thanks to my Dad for discovering me to such a wonderful dish.  I Love You, Pa!
In Malaysia, Fish Head Curry is one of the popular dishes but I prefer to cook with the fish body instead of the head onlyJ.  Red snapper or Malaysian literally name it as “Red Fish” is my choice for this recipe.  To enhance the taste of the fish, I marinate and fry it before I add it into the curry.  Of course, I won’t forget to add in with some assorted vegetables.  I hope you will like it too!

600g fish, washed and cleaned
