Talapia Sweet Sour with Mango

Am kind of lazy all the time, especially when the head of the house not around. That's why I always cook 'out of recipe protocol'. Whatever cross my head, experiment it. If ok, it might be next time. If not, just forget it. This time, the kids said "macam 3 rasa la mama..." So, I will try on chicken for Mat Rock to taste... :-D

Talapia Sweet Sour with Mango

1 whole talapia - deep fried and put in a suitable dish plate
young mango - grated coarsely
daun kesum (malay basil) - finely chopped
kaffir leaves
5 pcs bird chilli (put more for hotter taste)
3 cloves garlic - crushed
1 onion - diced or wedged (i prefer wedges cut)
1 inch ginger - thinly lengthwise cut
1 red chilli - sliced
2 small scoops oyster sauce
3 small scoops chilli sauce
3 small scoops tomato ketchup
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vinegar (can be substitued with lime/lemon juice)
