    Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 - 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh ginger (approx a 1in/2.5cm piece)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp Nirapara turmeric
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 green chilis
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 lb haddock 450g or use cod, pollock or another firm white fish
  • 2 tsp tamarind concentrate
  • 1 cup coconut milk 240ml

    Method Of Preparation

  • Step 1

    Warm a small skillet/frying pan over medium heat and toast the whole spices (coriander, cumin and mustard seeds) for a couple of minutes until fragrant. The mustard seeds may start to pop, which is a sign to stop.

  • Step 2

    Roughly chop the garlic and ginger and crush with the salt to a smooth paste. Add the toasted spices and crush. Add the remaining powdered spices and mix to form a relatively smooth paste.

  • Step 3

    Finely dice the chilis and onion. Dice the tomato. Warm the oil in a medium-large skillet or another shallow pan over medium heat.

  • Step 4

    Cook the onion in the oil for a few minutes until it has softened. Add the spice paste and stir through. Cook for a minute or two, then add the tomato and chilli and let the liquid almost disappear (a minute).

  • Step 5

    Cut the fish into large bite-sized chunks.

  • Step 6

    Add the tamarind and coconut milk to the pan, mix through. Then add the fish chunks and cook until it is ready.

  • Step 7

    Serve over rice.
