I think I spent twice as much time chopping and slicing the vegetables as I did on cooking this dish. The actual time at the stove is about 20 minutes and you need to have all your ingredients on hand for quick work. For me, it was also an unusual process. But the finished dish is well worth the making of it.

This recipe is a good reminder that in Indian culture “curry” is not a spice, nor even the blend of spices we call curry powder. It is a type of cooking. A curry is a stew using meat, fish, chicken or vegetables in a spiced sauce. The spices may or may not include curry leaves or a curry powder blend. They may or may not provide the flavour we associate with curry powder.
In this dish the flavours that stand out are cumin and coriander with a hint of coconut in the coconut milk sauce base, and the author describes it as “fish in a light coconut milk curry”.
I confess I did not go out and get a fresh coconut to grind up with water to provide the coconut milk. I used a can of coconut milk. So I had to guess at the quantities. I also expect it was nowhere near as thick as thick coconut milk obtained from the first grinding.
Nevertheless I enjoyed the dish and my only objection is that white fish in a white sauce served with white rice made for a colourless meal. And that reminds me, I am not familiar with the fish named in the recipe and do not know if they would have added colour. I used the white fish fillets I had on hand in the freezer.

This is quite a mild curry and some may prefer to add (as I did) some hot curry powder, cayenne and/or chili powder. But once seasoned to your taste, it is a very good vegan curry. I quite enjoyed it.
Another change I made was to increase the oil to 2 Tbsp. so there would be enough to absorb the flour when making the sauce. If the sauce is still too thick, add more milk until the consistency is to your taste.
I would also recommend adding seasonings with the flour (and before adding the milk) for the best flavour.

A nice satisfying stew. I really liked this. And except for a tiny ½ teaspoon of potato flour it is pretty much devoid of starch, so it’s a good paleo choice. With extra time, it would work well in a slow-cooker. Actual preparation prior to simmering only takes 15 minutes or so.
