2 red chilies 
Chili padi (optional)
some shallots/garlic
1 small pc of turmeric
2 stalk of lemon grass
1 small pc of belancan

1tsp of assam jawa paste
salt n sugar to taste


  1. Heat about some oil in wok.  Saute the pounded ingredients till aromatic.
  2. Add in assam jawa paste, sugar and salt to taste.
  3. Dish out and let it cool for a while
  4. Spoon the  fried chilli paste into the slits and stomach of fish as filling.

Another way to prepare the stuffed fish is to bake it.  Place stuffed fish on a piece of banana leaf and wrap it up with aluminum foil.  Turn over the foil in between during baking.  Lastly open  the foil to bake  further 10 mins .
