After a long and busy day, all you want is a delicious home-cooked meal. A quick and easy curried fish meal can save the day and change your mood! Preparing curry dishes can be intimidating and confusing especially if it’s your first time. But no need worry, Kissan is here to help!
You can have an amazing, flavourful, and jaw-dropping curried fish dinner in just 30 minutes! Cooking with Kissan spices takes the mystery and fear out of creating Indian dishes. All you need is a few spoonfuls of our masalas to create an unforgettable meal that will make impress your family and friends!
Curried fish, like all curry dishes, can be made in many ways, so don’t be shy to experiment and find your favourite. For this recipe, we will be making a semi-gravy curried fish with Kissan Fish Masala and codfish (you can also use tilapia or any white fish)!
Let’s get started! What you’ll need to do first is pick your fish. This recipe works best with white fishes as they are quick to cook and pair perfectly with all the spices used. White fishes are typically tilapia, cod, bass, grouper, haddock, catfish, and snapper. We opted for codfish in this recipe.
Now that you have selected your fish, drizzle some cooking oil (we suggest olive oil) and gently rub the Kissan Fish Masala and set aside for about 10-15 minutes.
While your fish marinates, grab a large shallow frying pan heat up some oil and toss in mustard seeds. Mustard seeds are an amazing addition to many curry dishes. Not only do mustard seeds contain minerals and antioxidants that help improve bone health and has anti-inflammatory properties, but they also offer a subtle yet aromatic flavour that pairs perfectly in curry sauces, pastes and stews.
Once the seeds turn golden brown, add in some curry leaves, garlic, ginger, a dash of Kissan Fish Masala, salt, tomato paste, fenugreek leaves and stir-fry until the oil starts to separate from the masala.
At this point, your kitchen will smell so intoxicating that your guests may start drooling! Keep their appetites engaged while they wait with one quick and tasty appetizer like our Spicy Stuffed Mushroom Caps with Cheese & Crispy Fried Onions!
Now for the final step, splash some water into the mix and gently stir in your marinated fish. It’s important to carefully and slowly stir because most white fishes are fragile and can break apart easily. So to avoid your curried fish from becoming a stir fry, use a ladle to stir so your pieces stay whole.
And there you have it, a quick and easy curried fish that will have your guests craving more! You can pair this toasted buttered naan or roti. It also goes perfectly with your favourite rice dish. Garnish with fresh lime and cilantro garnish or simply enjoy it by its self!
