Viji's Cod Curry



So we arrived at my dear sis in laws house after an exhausting flight and drive, and she made this lovely coconut cod curry, heres the recipe!

Ingredients:
  • olive oil
  • 2 pinch of cumin seeds
  • 3 dried red chilis
  • 6 tomatoes
  • Cod or any white fish cut into chunks
  • on teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1/4 spoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • pinch of turmericBold
  • fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Method:
  1. add tomatoes to hot water for one minute then peel the skin
  2. cut the tomato into small pieces
  3. heat the oil and add cumin seeds, dried red chili for a minute
  4. then add tomato and saute for 5 minutes let it reduce down into a paste
  5. then add the fish chunks and spices along with the lemon juice and simmer for 10- 12 minutes, then add the coconut milk and simmer another 5 minutes
  6. garnish with fresh cilantro over rice
It also lends very well to being a tomato bisque minus the coconut milk with a crusty bread.

Seeing my Grand parents tomorrow can't wait !!
