Now a weekly staple. I also halves the turmeric, and added a tsp. of mild curry powder. Gives us that curry fix. Also can substitute a half of can of dices tomatoes if you don't have a fresh tomatoe on hand.

Good basic recipe. I don't think this is flavorful enough on it's own, so for some tastes it might be ok. I added a stem of curry leaves, chopped along with a 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds and 3 chopped green chilis. I also added 1 tsp of curry powder. I used tilapia for fish and after all that, DH said it's the best dish I've ever made.

Enjoyed immensely the other night, coupled with a dried fruit and almond couscous. Love the tomato and turmeric combo anytime but kept cancoon's review in mind and halved the turmeric and added a tsp of curry paste. Wow. Great flavours. Will make this again in a flash when I need another fishy curry hit. And it's really easy, too. Thanks for your no fuss recipe.
