Let’s Cook #1 : Ikan bawal sweet sour

Hi semua! Hari ni Mira nak share resepi simple sweet sour campak-campak yang sesuai untuk dimasak dengan ikan goreng. Kenapa Mira panggil campak-campak? Sebabnya bahan-bahan yang dipakai untuk resepi ni bukan bahan-bahan “original” untuk masakan sweet sour yang sebenar. Hewhewhew.
Oh and actually dish ni was cooked by my husband ie the Main Chef in our home. Mira masak sayur je masa ni. Hakhak. The vege dish will be uploaded soon. Ok jom start.
