      Fantastic recipe Geema!!! made this for lunch to take to my inlaws. Used my own masala instead of the spice mix which is anyway a mix of fennel, cumin, coriander, pepper, aniseed and bayleaf which I always keep on hand (lovely to add to a vegetable preparation too!!!). Added the cayenne and turmeric. And then followed the recipe using the green chilli and floored them folks!!!Thanks!!! Fay khush hui!!!! (Means you made Fay happy in Hindi. It is a famous dialogue from a Bollywood film rather like I'll be Back by AS);) Fay

      I will never buy canned curry sauce again. This was a yummy sauce for fish.

      Excellent! I used one 14 oz. can of coconut milk, so there would be plenty of sauce. Also had to cook longer than specified (total of 45 minutes) because my cod was very thick. Hubby and brother-in-law loved it.
