Tenggiri Fishball Soup

People always ask how I find time to cook...the truth is that the recipes that I chose are super simple and easy to make....a no brainer (to me) as I call it...I haven't the luxury of time, I have six children and I haven't a helper either...but then, good food is homecooked food, right! about this fishball soup....well, they weren't really round to call fishball, but yeah, that's what they were meant to be! I had made them last Saturday for lunch, besides my usual Gulai (Curry) Ikan Merah (Red Snapper)!
These were the ingredients......

Tenggiri fillet, about 350g, minced in a food processor...or like I did, using my batu lesung (motar and pestle)
1 inch ginger, pound with fish
1 inch ginger, 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
2 small tomatoes...I have them in almost all my meals...they are flavour enhancers
1 medium potato skinned, and cubed
1 medium onion, coarsely sliced
about 10 dried anchovies, also a flavour enhancer
a sprinkling of black pepper powder
1 tbsp cooking oil
Heat oil in a medium saucepan...err I am still using the Visionwares that I got from my uni days! Sautee garlic and ginger until, fragrant, add the dried anchovies. When golden, add in 2 cups of water, let simmer, add potatoes. When potatoes are about 80% cooked, make balls from the minced fish and add to the simmering soup. Add tomatoes, onion, a dash of black pepper and salt to taste.

After that...ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY...with a bowl of steaming hot rice...mmmmmm..... 

PS: You know it was Teacher's day and the one person that have left out whom I should be thankful to have is my sugarpaste teacher...Wiz! TQVM...muahs!
