Pangasius  processed into a delicious pindang is not easy. If you are not careful, it can smell funny.

  1. Puree the following 3 spices into a pasta: 5 red chillies, 6 garlics and 6 shallots. Put in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Scrape the fish and clean it. Then cut it into slides (see picture). Rub the fish with the lime juice. Let it stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavours to be absorbed. Wash the fish and drain.
  3. Boil 1250 cc water with the spicy pasta, bay leaves and ginger in medium heat.
  4. Add the fish and another ingredients, add salt and sugar as needed.
  5. Cook until tender.
