quick easy exactly what it says on the recipe :)

My girlfriend and I made this recipe recently. We substituted the cod with river cobbler and it worked deliciously well. We had to reduce the sauce quite a bit before serving. For that reason I would advise cutting the stock by 50%. Otherwise a very delicious curry. Which was fast, but unlikely to be ready in 15 minutes as advertised ;)

I made this last night, it was quick, easy and absolutely delicious!! I added spinach and plum tomatoes at the end to include some veg. I would definitely recommend this recipe!

Oh, I forgot to say that it probably doesn't need that much stock, if at all, as even with the extra veg mine was on the saucy side. I also used a tandoori paste in an attempt to tame the heat, but would happily go spicier next time.

This is great for how simple it is. I added half a cauliflower to give it more body, as my boyfriend wasn't having rice with it. Really satisfying on a rainy evening.

Made the sauce with just a little water & simmered for 30 minutes till thick. Used Pataks balti paste and added some very lazy chilli. Used frozen cod and frozen prawns. Served with Uncle Bens microwave long grain & wild rice and garlic & coriander nan bread. Really nice, quick & easy midweek meal.

Made this today and it was delicious however I did modify it a bit in that I added a good spoonful of tomato puree, a teaspoon of hot chilli powder, some pineapple chunks and I used frozen fish. As such I had to cook slightly longer than advised to ensure that the fish was cooked but it was delicious especially with the pineapple chunks which added just that extra bit of something.

This was lovely and very quick to make. I used a tip left above and left out the stock. I used tikka masala paste as I'm not keen on hot curries. I used fresh haddock and threw in some cooked prawns at the end.

My family absolutely loved this. We used plenty of curry paste and only used coley, instead of cod. Even so, my 2 year old gobbled the lot up two days in a row. A big hit!
