Balti Fish Curry

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jewelies

Posting this for my brother from a book recommended by Kookaburra. Australian Womans Weekly Asian Meals in Minutes. The orginal recipe doesn't add salt but with fresh coriander I like to add a bit of salt. I also increased the garlic from 2 to 3 cloves and the coconut cream from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup.

Delicious! I used a small and pretty hot chilli with seeds to make half the quantity and thought that gave a good balance between heat and not overpowering the fish. It had a beautiful aroma and flavours that worked together perfectly.
