Dried Fish Curry

This humble dried curry fish is now standing a main menu in wedding reception ( kenduri ) and also restaurant that serve nasi kampung as an option. My version is known as gulai darat ikan kering. Good to go with white rice, stir fried veggies, and of course, sambal belacan and ulam.
dried fish cuts
2 eggplants - cut
3 potatoes - quartered
2 tomatoes -quartered
2 tbsp curry powder ( may use specified mixed powder for dried fish, but the ordinary curry will as great too)
2 cups water
2 tamarind skin
2 cups coconut milk
salt to taste

Saute ingredients:
3 bulb garlics - chopped
5 bulb union - sliced thinly
1 tbsp mixed herbs used in normal curry
small cinnamon stick
1 star anise
curry leaf

Bring to boil curry powder in 2 cups of water and tamarind skin until fully boiling for 10-15 minutes. Add in coconut milk, dried fish and potatoes. Let it simmers and potatoes turn soft then add in eggplants and tomatoes.
Bring to boil thoroughly.

In another frying pan, heat 2-3 tbsp oil then saute all ingredients until fragrant. Pour everything includes oil to the boiling curry. Take off fire.
