I love the experience of eating fish head curry with my fingers and off banana leaves. If you're adventurous, try sucking the eyeballs! You can also use fish steaks instead of a fish head. Ready-blended fish curry powder is available at the supermarket or wet market.
Undercook the fish head just a little bit. Just before serving, heat the curry gently for about 5 to 10 minutes until the flesh is fully cooked and serve immediately.
Instead of using plates, use banana leaves.
