Culinary Delights : Masala Fish and Potato curry

One of my friends sent this and i though i would share with y’all. I have not tried it yet and I am falling behind with Ciiku’s mac and cheese and Rugi’s Chicken with chocolate sauce. Anyway, here’s Vee Nicks’ recipe:

Masala Fish and Potato Curry


2 lb cod; skinned and cut in 2 to 3 inch pieces (i am assuming any white fish would do )
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tbl spns plain flour
4 medium potatoes; cut into circles
1 large onion; chopped fine
8 large tomatoes; blanched, peeled and liquidised
1 tspn tomato puree
4 cloves garlic; minced
1 tspn grated ginger
4 chillies; minced
2 tspn coriander/cumin powders
1/2 tspn tumeric
salt to taste;
3-4 tblspn Oil
Coriander chopped fine for garnish

Marinate the fish in add lime juice and some salt for 30 minutes. Coat with plain flour and shallow fry until golden brown; set aside
Saute the potatoes until cooked; put the to one side
Heat 1 tlbspn of oil in a pan, add the onions until, golden brown.
Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, ginger, chillies and salt. Cook, until the oil floats out, then add the salt, tumeric, coriander and cumin powders, mix and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Place the fish and potatoes in an oven proof dish; pour the tomato mix (masala) over them and place in a medium hot oven (180oC for 30 – 45 minutes) or microwave for 6-10 minutes until every thing is piping hot.
Garnish with coriander, serve with chapattis/rice/ugali/matoke

  • V’s verdict: super yummmy walala.
    Point for next time add more spice because the lemon marinade makes the fishy taste go away.
    Sijaweza to get my pix on comp yet so for now use this.
    After I was done I thought this is a fancy recipe for flour covered fish 🙂

PS: Wanjoro has been out of food for a while now cant wait to get better and try this out!
