Fish curry

Light and very aromatic fish curry with cod loins, spinach, tomatoes, coconut milk, ginger and fresh curry leaves. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients as it’s a very easy and quick dish to prepare. Bear in mind, that curry leaves have nothing in common with the curry spice mix, so don’t try to substitute them with it. Curry leaves (middle picture) are lemony in taste. Once the fish’s been added to the pot, try not to stir the dish too often, fish might break into small pieces and the dish would loose its texture. Serve decorated with fresh coriander or curry leaves, with naan bread or freshly steamed basmati rice. Enjoy.
