Ingredients

Rice

1 packet basmati rice

1 1/2 cups water

Pinch of salt

Fish cakes

600g blue eye trevalla, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1/2 chilli, finely chopped (optional)

1 carrot, grated

1 cup grated sweet potato

1/3 cup roughly chopped coriander leaves and stalks 

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1/4 cup plain flour 

Asian vegetables

1 teaspoon oil (e.g. peanut, canola,sunflower)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 packet baby corn, halved

1 bunch bok choy, end removed, halved lengthways

200g button mushrooms, finely sliced

2 tablespoons kecap manis

Dipping sauce

3-4 tablespoons kecap manis

2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander

1/2 chilli, finely chopped (optional)

Method

Combine all rice ingredients in a medium pot and bring to the boil. As soon as it boils, cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce to the lowest heat to cook for 12 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to steam, still covered, for a further 8 minutes. Do not lift the lid while cooking.

While the rice cooks, prepare the fishcakes. Place the fish in a foodprocessor or blender and process until finely chopped. Add the garlic,ginger, chilli, carrot, sweet potato, coriander and soy sauce and process until well combined.

Divide the fish mixture into 8-10 equal portions, roll into patties and flatten slightly. Coat in flour (shaking off excess). Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan (preferably non-stick) on medium heat. Cook fish cakesin batches, for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and cover with tinfoil to keep warm.

While the fish cakes are cooking, heat oil in a large fry-pan or wok on high heat. Add garlic, baby corn, bok choy and mushrooms and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, until tender. Stir through kecap manis.

Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

To serve, divide rice, fish cakes and Asian vegetables between plates and serve with dipping sauce on the side.
