  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp Madras curry paste (we used Patak's)
  • 400g can tomato



    A member of the nightshade family (along with aubergines, peppers and chillies), tomatoes are in…

  • 200ml vegetable stock
  • sustainable white fish fillets, skinned and cut into big chunks
  • rice or naan bread


  1. Heat the oil in a deep pan and gently fry the onion and garlic for about 5 mins until soft. Add the curry paste and stir-fry for 1-2 mins, then tip in the tomatoes and stock.

  2. Bring to a simmer, then add the fish. Gently cook for 4-5 mins until the fish flakes easily. Serve immediately with rice or naan

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.

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.

Absolutely delicious. I used Korma paste and haddock. Didn't add any stock so the sauce was just perfect. Will definitley make again and may even try it with chicken!

This was a winner! I can't get my husband to eat fish at all. Told him we were having a fish curry for dinner and his face visibly fell! Followed the recipe as above and added some frozen prawns, frozen peas and a couple of tablespoons of half fat creme fraiche. Not so low fat but he thought it was delicious. I'm gradually winning him over to fish but it is an up hill struggle!!

Extremely quick and tasty. Much easier than making traditional Indian fish curry using a list of spices. I also added some okra and eggplant like my mum uses in her fish curry and it's a great way to soak up the sauce. Takes a little more cooking time to soften the veg, but worth. I also use flake which a firm texture. Cheers

This was absolutely delicious! Will definately be making again! Let it simmer for atleast 30mins before adding the fish to add more flavour - would recommend if you have time. Found that by adding all the stock made it a little too water but apart from that it was very tasty! :)

A really tasty dish and easy to make, used Rogan Josh paste and added fresh coriander, my first cookery attempt was enjoyed by all. Fresh tomatoes sounds good Alison, will try next time.
