Directions

  1. Combine curry powder, ground ginger, and ground turmeric in a skillet; toast the spices over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Pour olive oil and garlic into the spice mixture and stir to make a paste.
  2. Stir onion into the spice mixture; cook and stir until the onion is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir about half the coconut milk and half the water into the onion mixture; simmer together for 5 minutes. Add cod to the mixture; continue cooking until the fish is firm, about 5 minutes. Add tomato, remaining coconut milk, and remaining water to the skillet; cook until the tomato is softened, about 5 minutes.

Great recipe! I substituted coconut oil for the vegetable oil for more coconutty flavor, and kicked up the spice with some red pepper flakes.

This recipe was good if you like a blander curry. There was no kick to it so I probably won't be in a hurry to make it again because we like spicy food. The only thing I did differently was use about double the oil for the paste as 1/4tsp wasn't enough and I added about double the cod as well because I looked at the amount asked for and it didn't seem enough. I'm glad I did.

With these changes I would give it 5 stars: Use chicken broth instead of water; coconut oil instead of olive oil; garlic powder instead of garlic; about 1/3 of an onion. Add salt to taste. Add 1 to 1 1/2 T shredded coconut. Coconut Chicken Curry: One small to med. chicken breast, cut in bite size pieces. cook in 1 tsp. of coconut oil. add spices to drippings to toast.
