Assam stingray curry

Although severely jetlagged, having spent last 3 weeks touring Cork, Paris n London, I staggered up from deep sleep to cook dinner. We’ve been missing sweet, sour, hot n spicy fish dish to be eaten with steamed rice, n we missed rice dearly too. A bowl of white rice in London sold for between £2 to £3! (≈S$3.50 to $4.50).  And, I devoured 3 1/2 bowls at one go during a meal in London’s Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. haha 😝😝😛
