Fish curry

Since this is my first post of the year, first of all wish you all a very happy new year! Hope everyone has had a fabulous start to the year and is keeping up with their new year resolutions! After seeing the benefits of eating well, the only resolution I made this year is to continue eating healthy and nutritious food as we did last year. Although this is the first recipe of the year on the blog, we have been pretty much cooking at home everyday and have been really enjoying having home-cooked healthy meals. This Sunday we rustled up this quick fish curry and enjoyed it with rice :)


250 gms white fish, cut into about 1 inch pieces (I used Basa) 
2 onions, cut into quarters
4 dried red chillies
1/2 inch piece of ginger
3-4 garlic cloves
2 tbsp of oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (I've used tomatoes from a can)
1/4 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
Salt to taste
Chopped green chilli and coriander for garnish


Grind the onions, dried red chillies, garlic cloves and ginger to a paste. Keep aside.

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and let them sputter. Reduce the heat to low and add the onion paste to the pan. Add the turmeric powder and coriander powder and mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes (Add a couple of tbsps of water if you find the mixture dry).

Stir in the chopped tomatoes. Add the fish pieces and gently combine together. Add in the Kashmiri chilli powder and garam masala powder along with one and a half cups of water (or more if required). Season with salt and cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked and starts to flake.

Garnish with chopped fresh green chillies and fresh coriander leaves.
