Indian? YES, please!
Indian is my favourite kind of food. I just love the spices and different kinds of flavours. Also most of the Indian spices have healing and cleansing benefits which are great for well-being and a healthy body.
I decided to cook more indian spiced dishes in the future. So, if you have not started yet, time has come to get some of those amazing indian spices. For a start, the basic spice essestials - turmeric, garam masala, cumin and coriander seeds - will do. :)
We got freshly fished cod fish on the market. It was a huge piece which would have fed four people. But we were hungry and almost finished at a time.
Tray baked fish curry
I found a new style to cook my favourite fish curry. What bothered me was that compared to meat, fish is quite soft and easily falls apart. Therefore, I thought why not try it a tray-baked fish curry? This dish is a crowd pleaser! I promise your guests will love you for cooking it. And for you, its a simple and great way to cook in a relaxed way when having your loved ones over for dinner.
It is fairly easy as you simply prepare the spicy gravy and covering the fish and then baking it in the oven until its cooked. Sounds easy? - It is easy! Trust me!
All about slow food.
Make sure to fry the onion-tomato gravy well. The longer the better. It is the key for the spice experience and guarantee for a taste explosion.
I served the fish curry with some greens and my favourite sweet potato fries. Find the recipe here! But first, take a look at this beautiful recipe.
