This curry is very mild even with the chillies.


Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 50 grams Butter for greasing
  • 1 kg Firm white fish fillets such as snapper, whiting
  • 250 mls Dry white wine
  • 130 grams Butter
  • 1 Leek, white part only, thinly sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Grated fresh ginger
  • 3 teaspoons Ground coriander
  • 3 teaspoons Ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons Sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Concentrated tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • 45 grams Dessicated coconut
  • 245 grams Sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 185 mls Water

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Lightly grease a roasting tray & generously grease a sheet of baking paper with the butter.
  3. Put the fish in the greased tray, pour over the wine & cover with the baking paper, greased side down.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until almost cooked through, then remove from oven & set aside, keeping any cooking juices.
  5. To make the curry melt the butter in a large frying pan over low heat. Add the leek & cook for 4-5 minutes or until translucent.
  6. Add the garlic, ginger & spices & cook for about 5 minutes. Add the coconut, sour cream, sugar, water & any cooking juices from the fish to the pan, then simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Gently put the fish into the pan & coat with the sauce to reheat.
  8. Turn off the heat, divide the fish & the sauce between serving bowls. Top each portion with some coriander & serve.

Notes

This recipe is from Anna Gare Eat In cookbook. Chicken can be replaced instead of fish. I added extra garlic & lemon juice to suit my taste.

  • Yum to it all except the fish. I would definitely replace fish with chicken
