Lovely- my 7 yr old curry hater loved it. Of course I didn't tell him it was curry until he was nearly finished eating ;) I used Patak's Biriyani paste and mahi-mahi fish (almost like tuna)

I've done this many, many times, due to the fact that it's so quick! I've had it with the frozen Basics white fish (defrosted first), many times, and because the sauce absorbs the flavours, it still tastes good. The last time I had it was with haddock from the fish counter, and wow! It's bad because I've now been converted to more expensive fish! This recipe is highly recommended!

Really nice, simmered the sauce for 20 mins, and did not add the stock, used a half a bag of fruits de mer and a small piece of haddock.

Oh I also added a red pepper to bulk it up a bit, very tasty.

Delicious! I used Pataks Balti paste as that what I had in and also forgot to add the veg stock and was perfect without so prob will skip that next time too. Found I had to cook fish for longer than 4 mins but that may be my personal taste. Never had fish in curry before but will have this again, yum yum!!

Quick and easy to make but nothing special and very expensive if using cod

lindastead's picture

is it ok to make this recipe using frozen cod fillets?

Left out the stock as other people had suggested. Nice curry, nothing that special but quick and easy!

Delicious and very easy recipe. Used cod fillets and prawns to make enough for 3 portions and served with cous cous - the cod almost completely disintegrated, but the prawns gave the chunky consistency that the dish needed. Still wonderful even after 2 days (although prawns have toughened in the reheating process).

this is a fab recipe, I didn't change a thing as i'm a bit of a novice cook, but everything works and it's so good!

Highly Recommended

Have made this curry twice now, followed other posters suggestions and added prawns, sweet potato and courgette. Just used medium curry powder but it was too hot so added some coconut milk and it is delicious! Takes longer to make with the added veggies etc but definitely worth it!

I probably over cooked the fish slightly but even still, i shan't be making this one again. Very watery and just generally not very exciting.

I've made this curry twice and both times its been great. My husband has given this curry a ten out of ten as well. It took no time to make and it was also healthy.

Quick, easy and delicious!
I used smoked haddock, spinach and chick peas served with half chunky chips and rice.

I made this recipe and it was really easy. I made my own curry paste using the recipe that was with the Chicken Tikka Masala in a recent issue of goodfood.

The curry was quick and simple to make and was very tasty.
