Basa fillet curry

Sometimes AS definitely surprises me with his cooking and last night, I got a big surprise when he cooked me a really yummy fish curry. Sorry don’t have lots of photos as I was not planning to post the recipe but after tasting it, I decided it must be shared.


  • Basa Fillet 300 gms
  • Spices
    • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
    • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
    • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon tandoori paste
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • 1/2 of small onion sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Mix all the spices together with tandoori paste and yogurt and marinate the fish for half an hour (longer if time permits).
  • Heat a pan and add oil.
  • When oil is heated, add sliced onion and fry until translucent.
  • On medium heat, add fish and fry each side for 1 -2 minutes so both sides are brown.
  • Add water and simmer for 5 minutes on low heat until the fish is cooked thoroughly.

  • You can add more water if the sauce dries out too quickly.

I had mine with salad (still trying to eat healthy) and it would be even yummy with rice or roti.
