Fish Losun Miri – Sole fish/Lepo Curry


Once one of my aunts visited me and reminded me of all those delicious recipes my grandma used to make. This made me learn and experiment with most varieties of fish curries.

There were many people from whom I learnt the art of cooking. Thanks to my mother-in-law and father-in-law who have preserved these recipes written down, and gifted me the diary of all the traditional recipes.

Another tip I would like to share is, adding a few prawns while cooking sole fish gives good aroma and enhances the taste of the curry.
