Method

  1. To make the chutney, put the coriander, chilli, coconut, lemon juice, ginger and cumin in a food processor. Add good pinches of salt and sugar, then pulse until it has a rough salsa-like consistency.

  2. Rinse the rice and place in a deep frying pan with 225ml water. Bring to the boil, then turn down low – it will take about 8 mins to cook.

  3. After about 3 mins, place the fish fillets on top of the rice, then dot a tsp of butter on each and spread the fresh chutney over in a thick layer. Cover with a lid and cook over a low heat for about 5 mins until the fish and rice are cooked through.

  4. Serve the fish and rice with the yogurt, warmed naan breads and the lemon wedges.

Very nice but could do with a bit more flavour (even with more ginger and cumin than suggested).
