Event description
Step into the kitchens of 11 home cooks and be prepared to be blown away by the mouth-watering flavours of their traditional curries!

About this Event

We Singaporeans love eating curry. Assam Fish Head, Eurasian’s Devil’s Curry, Aloo Gobi and Tikka Masala – the possibilities are endless. How many of these curries have you tried? Makan My Curry brings Singaporeans into the homes of 11 different home cooks to hear more about the processes and stories behind their curries and culture.

What is Curry Fish Head?

The origin story of fish head curry is a true-blue Singaporean one which involves the cross-cultural melding of flavours and ingredients. It features the head of a fish stewed in Singaporean-style curry with assorted vegetables such as okra and eggplants. What’s not to love?

About the cook

Curry fish head is a dish Catherine Tan loves to prepare for family and friends. She first learnt how to make it by observing her mother in the kitchen. Ms Tan recalled being drawn to the fragrance of her mother’s freshly-pounded chillies and the lush, smoothness of her gravy. Among other things, her mother taught her that generous amounts of shallots is a sure fire way to up the ante on the dish’s sweetness.

According to Ms Tan, who sells prawn noodles for a living, the secret to making a good bowl of curry fish head lies in the freshness and quality of the fish. Also important: the care and attention paid to properly char and roast the ingredients to achieve the elusive wok hei flavour.
