This is a Bengali curry originally intended to use up the less attractive parts of the fish, but it works even better with fresh fish fillets.

Serves: 4 

  • 2 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1kg thick whitefish fillets, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon fenugreek seeds

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring the tomatoes, ground cumin, turmeric, salt and water to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to medium and maintain a simmer.
  2. Heat the oil in a frypan over medium-high heat; cook the fish in the oiled frypan until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the fish to the saucepan.
  3. Heat a separate frypan over medium heat and toast the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds and fenugreek seeds until fragrant, just a few seconds. Stir the spices into the saucepan. Simmer until the flavours integrate, about 10 minutes more. Serve hot.
