      This is an easy recipe, but the curry is quite mild, almost bland. Even taking another reviewer's advice and adding tomato, green chili and curry leaves, and doubling the amounts of garlic and ginger, it is still pretty mild. The flavor is nice, though, and I'm sure it will make a good dinner for me. I also added some vegetables - pre-cooked mushrooms and asparagus. Thank you for a recipe that I will use as the basis of many curry dishes in the future. I would like to add, that, other that what is noted here, I used the given amounts of ingredients for the sauce, but I used much less fish - only about 200 grams. On the other hand, the vegetables perhaps made up for the lack of volume. I did get two nice servings.

      This recipe is easy and delicious. When I grind the onions, I also grind a tomato with it. I add curry leaves to the fish also whole green chilli for flavor. The curry fresh curry leaves have an amazing flavor.
