    A lovely tasty dish and really easy to make, perfect for a quick dinner! Already added to my favourites and will definitely be making this dish again...soon!  -  04 Oct 2010


    Used different ingredients. I didn't add the curry powder but added a generous handful of roughly chopped coriander which added a lovely flavour to the dish  -  04 Oct 2010


    Use garam Masala and turmeric in place of curry power and stir it into the oil of the fish add this infused oil to the pan of uncooked rice, stir rice into oil and cook as normal. Use smoked mackerel for a more authentic taste.  -  15 Feb 2011
