Thai Fish Curry





Enjoy curry in a healthy and easy way with Carnation Evap’s Thai Fish Curry.

Mama Chat (my son’s nanny) cooked a new dish for us today. Through the years, her passion for cooking never lost its spark in the kitchen. During weekdays she would watch Katok sa Cusina (before Face to Face) at TV 5. She mentioned this fish curry from the tv program and I copied its recipe from Carnation’s Cook at Home website. Watch the full cooking episode here:


Thai Fish Curry Recipe


Everybody in the house loved it, even my little sister. Using dory & evaporated milk instead of the traditional beef/chicken and coconut milk makes this dish even healthier; you won’t worry about eating too much.

Frozen Cream Dory fillet can be bought in supermarkets. A half kilo (4 large fillet pieces) costs Php 150. You may use coriander or wansoy as an alternative for cilantro. Also, be careful putting in too much curry powder. The heat factor must be mild if you have kids in the house.
