DIRECTIONS

  • Wipe fish dry with paper towels, cut into serving pieces and sprinkle lightly with salt. Cover and leave aside in a cool place.
  • Heat ghee (oil or butter) in a heavy pan, add onion and fry gently until transparent. Add ginger if using, garlic, chili, baharat, turmeric and cinnamon bark and stir over heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add tomato, pierced loomi, and water. Add salt to taste and bring to a slow simmer. Cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
  • Place fish pieces in sauce, cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until fish is cooked through. (I use a cast iron pan and take it off the heat at 15 minutes).
  • Lift fish onto prepared Recipe #405300 or Recipe #418082. Remove loomi and cinnamon bark from sauce and spoon sauce over fish.
  • Enjoy!
