Ikan Goreng Belado (Fried Fish with Chillies)

This is a spicy dish because I am using bird’s eye chillies, you can make it less spicy by replacing with just red chillies.


  • 5-6 yellowtail scad fish or ikan selar
  • 10 bird’s eye chillies or cili padi, grounded
  • 5-6 shallots, grounded
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • Salt & Sugar to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying
