A return to fishy goodness tonight. After Monday’s late dinner due to a time consuming recipe, today’s simple and tasty offering was a pleasure.
After heating mustard oil I added Lanchester poran, cloves, green cardomom and bay leaves. I then cooked an onion until soft, added green chillies, garlic and ginger pasted and more spices (turmeric, red chilli powder, cumin and coriander). After frying this mix for a minute, a splash of water finished the ingredients and I simmered the sauce for 15 minutes.
The sea bass was fried in a hot pan for a minute each side, then added to the sauce to a few minutes before serving. Delicious!
Mr M gave it 8.5 out of 10, I think I could stretch to 9 🙂 Eating Indian dishes has really increased my enjoyment of seafood, we’ve included a few in the recipes we’ve picked for the rest of the month.
Recipe picking is fun, but also difficult as there are so many things I want to try (and I did get more cooking books to pick from). We are going to finish the month with a proper feast, I’m thinking lots of small dishes with home made breads, raitas, chutneys and puds. Mmm.
