I love curries. I eat them all of the time. As I was cooking this one, the meal smelled delicious and my mouth began to salivate. As I placed the first bite into my mouth, however, I was very disappointed. The food was extremely bland. I poured more of the onion curry mixture onto my fish and rice; it didn't make a difference. This was a bland curry and I don't recommend it. I advise just using a curry recipe that you already know and love with your cod and rice.
This meal was quick and easy to make. I cut back on the oil, added a handful of raisins, a handful of sliced almonds and served it over barley. It was fantastic!
