Le Creuset's Goan Style Fish Curry Recipe

To give you some cooking inspiration, here's a goan style fish curry recipe using a balti dish from Le Creuset that we'd like you to try.

Goan curries originate from the western coast of India where the tropical weather and readily available fish and shellfish strongly influence the cuisine.

This warmly spiced and aromatic fish curry is made with coconut milk, tamarind and jaggery giving a creamy, sour and sweet finish. Fresh baby leaf spinach and coriander added at the end of cooking adds vibrancy and freshness.

1 teaspoon turmenic

1 tablespoon ground cumin
4 green cardamom pods - crushed with the back of a knife or a spoon
1 teaspoon course ground black pepper
