Fried Cambodian Fish Bengali Style

At the moment I’m cooking faster than can I process the pictures and write it all up.  So I’ve got a backlog of recipes from the past week.

Here’s a classical Bengali fish dish that we often have at my mum’s. It’s called “mas biran”, which basically means fried fish. The dish is actually a starter in Bengali cuisine. I’ve made it here as a main dish though as it’s more than adequate to be one. The fish is one of my all time favourites. It’s a freshwater fish that has a very distinct flavour that I only know in this particular kind of fish. It’s called “Khoi or Koi” in Bengali. In Khmer it’s called “Trey Krung”. The downside of this fish is that it has a lot of bones. But that’s not a problem for us coming from Bangladesh as we eat with our right hand and can pick the bones individually with our fingers.

I’ve been scouring the internet for hours now looking for the English name but without success. Also when I bought the fish it looked like this:

Sweet Thai Basil Mango & Tomato Salad

I was up at 4.30 this morning. By 6 I had cleaned my flat and done the washing. I wash by hand as I don’t have or need a washing machine. Then I was out running. I LOVE running early in the morning. The world is so beautiful and peaceful and so am I. No matter how busy the city, this early in the morning there’s a magic in the air.

Finally, this is the rhythm I want. After weeks of insomnia and topsy turvy sleeping patterns-waking up late afternoon because I can’t sleep all night or in the morning finally dosing off towards midday. Awful. I didn’t sleep more than my usual 4-5 hours last night. But sleeping at night makes a big difference.

I did my 5k this morning which is my norm. Still not very fast but that doesn’t matter. There is a steady improvement! I don’t have a pedometer at the moment so I can’t say exactly how far I ran. But my norm is 5k in 20-25 min. And I ran longer than 25 minutes.

After I came home I made myself this delicious salad!

Look through my eyes-running in Siem Reap

I went running again this morning. My speed and stamina aren’t worth talking about. Running with a hangover is easier than running with little sleep. I’m just exhausted and it takes so much effort. As I’m crap at running at the moment I took my camera with me. I took some photos of what I see. Some photos are from the day before yesterday evening.

Green Rice or another Puritan Panacea

As you might have noticed from my last recipe-I am a bit of a rice fanatic. In all my life when I cook curry dishes I want “PLAIN WHITE RICE” with it. When I go out to eat where-ever I insist on plain white rice with my dish. The only time I have rice differently is when it’s an egg-fried rice dish and then it’s okay because that is the main dish. No curry dishes to go with it.

Mad as a Foodie (Nutty like a Cook)!

My insomnia led me to still be awake the whole night and suddenly it was 9:30 in the morning. I don’t usually sleep till 2 am but in the last week I’ve been going to bed later and later. I’m just not tired. That’s my normal status. It’s how I’ve always been. 4-5 hours sleep every night and 8 hours 1 night a week! I put it onto my thyroid being overactive. But then what was it when I was a child? And then a teenager? Continue reading
