PRINT RECIPE

Words: Riyana @healthyishandhappy: Fish Curry is a staple in my house. It’s tangy, creamy, a bit spicy, and very satisfying. I know Indian spices can be intimidating but there are about 7 staple spices and if you have these your good! (cumin, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, curry powder, mustard seeds, cumin seeds). In Singspore you can get these spices at any grocery store along with the curry leaves used in this recipe.⠀
This dish is paleo and whole30. It goes great with cauliflower rice or a side of greens. White fish works best for this recipe and I usually go with Barramundi. Hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do!⠀
