by • 09/11/2017

Who doesn’t love the sensation of digging into a nice, hot bowl of curry? That savoury taste coupled with the pungent aroma of fresh herbs and spices makes for a truly delectable experience for the senses, even before it touches the tongue! While curry may be known for being quite the heavy-hitter in the calorie department, Karin G. Reiter’s got a curry recipe that will allow you to walk away from the dinner table without feeling like a glutton!

 

Serves 4

 

Ingredients:

  • 300g white fillet fish (grouper, snapper)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 5 potatoes (Organic)
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 onions
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 chilli (optional)
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp of cumin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons of red curry paste (containing shallots, ginger, curry etc)
  • 2 cans of lite coconut milk
  • Coriander seeds
  • 1 cup of fresh purified water
  • 1 tbsp of fish sauce
  • Pinch of salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Lime Zest
  • Spring onion, sprouts and coriander to garnish

 

Directions:

  1. Cut the fish to medium cube pieces.
  2. Chop all the vegetables into bite size pieces.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a medium size pot and add the red curry paste once the oil is hot. Fry for about 1 min until a beautiful aroma starts to spread though the house, then add the chilli, garlic, onion and stir. Add the rest of the vegetables (potato, carrots, sweet potato, tomato….), the coconut milk,  water, coriander seeds and fish sauce. Bring everything to a boil and simmer. Cook for ~20mins, until the potatoes/carrots and sweet potatoes are soft.
  4. Add boiling water if more fluids are required. Add the fish pieces in last (once all the vegetables are cooked) and continue to cook for about 5-10 mins until fish is cooked. Season with some salt and pepper.
  5. Add the sprouts and lime zest
  6. Garnish with chopped spring onion and some coriander
  7. Serve with steamed brown rice

Thanks to the usage of “lite” coconut milk, you’ll be able to save on plenty of calories when it comes to overall fat content. The usage of fish instead of the usual mutton or lamb also makes for a leaner dish of curry, along with greater amounts of omega-3s for a happy and healthy heart!

 

This curry recipe is definitely one that will stick around for a while – both your kitchen and your dinner company are sure to remind you of it on a regular basis! And while you could light a scented candle to freshen up the smell of your kitchen, there’s no way you’d want to distance yourself from the heaps of compliments flowing your way anytime soon!
