I had some fish in the freezer which was making the freezer smell and upsetting Jen, so I thought I’d better do something with it. I fried up some onions with garlic, ginger, bashed up mustard and cumin seeds, fenugreek, turmeric and salt. Hacked up the fish into bite size pieces and fried it up with the onions. Threw in some chopped up tomatoes and the juice from the can. Simmered for a little while and served my delicious fish curry on a bed of lemon and mustard seed flavoured rice.
Of course, an indian meal isn’t an indian meal without onion bhajis, so I sliced up an onion and mixed it with some grated sweet potato, then made a batter with flour, chili powder, turmeric and salt mixed with water. Deep-frying is a real pain when you don’t own a deep-fryer, so after mixing the batter in with the onion and sweet potato, I put it all in a hot frying pan, spreading it out nice and flat for even cooking. In hindsight I should’ve cooked it in smaller batches because the large pancake type thing I created was hard to turn over, but I managed and got it good and crispy on both sides. Delicious!
