Joe makes it easy: Goan Fish Curry with Green Apple
FOR 2 adults + 2 small children
PREP: 10 minutes
COOKING: 20 minutes
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 white onion, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 tablespoon of ginger paste
8 curry leaves – optional
400 ml tin of coconut milk
small bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped leaves and finely chopped stems
1 Granny Smith apple, cut into matchsticks (peeled or not, the choice is yours)
400 g firm, skinless white fish fillets, such as cod, haddock or hake, cut into large cubes
165 g shelled raw prawns
½ lime, cut into wedges
- Heat the coconut oil in a shallow wide-lid pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes until tender, then add the chopped tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Add the dried spices, ginger paste and curry leaves (if using), increase the heat a little and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the coconut milk, half fill the empty mold with water and turn it to collect the leftovers and add the water to the pan. Discard the cilantro stems and bring to a boil.
- Stir in the apple matches with the curry, then add the fish and shrimp. Squeeze the juice from half a lime, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat, remove the lid, sprinkle with cilantro leaves and serve with rice and lime wedges on the side.
