This was very tasty. I made it with a huge piece of cod loin I bought. I wasn't sure on the measurements on the madras paste (heaped or flat tablespoons?). In the end I used 2.5 flat tablespoons of pataks madras paste, and it was a good balance with just enough kick. The sauce was definitely too thin though, even after adding cornflour. With the sauce form the tinned tomates, I'd only use 100ml of stock next time.

I love this basic dish. I add any peppers/mushrooms etc I have in the fridge and any white fish. I have even made this before with 'cook from frozen' fillets and it was still nice and very economical!

Delicious! I added chickpeas, and the fish only took a couple of minutes to cook. I simmered the onions in the sauce for a few minutes to reduce the liquid a little.

I've done this several times now - it really is so easy and quick. I've used cod loin (when on offer in Tesco).

Really easy to make, and cheap too if you use a different fish - I used coley and it was delicious.

It was lovely even though I made a bit of a mess of it.....I'm going to try again and I'm sure it will be even better.

Loved this and did it just as recipe except for the curry paste and added Balti instead of Madras to in deference to my wife who doesn't like her curries too hot. Served it with Turmeric pilau with golden onions and it went down a treat. Will very much do again and will try the pesto version. If it's half as good it will be most acceptable!
