Fish curry with rice
« on: June 21, 2011, 01:06:11 pm »
Ingredients
2-6 small red chillies
2 cloves garlic
125g shallots / spring onions / brown onions
20g lemongrass
25g ginger
¼ cup coriander root and stems
¼ tsp turmeric
1 tbs peanut oil
4 x fish fillets (I used Basa)
400g jasmine rice (washed in basket)
800g water
Veggies of choice (I used bok choy for us, carrots and broccoli for kids)
400ml coconut milk
2tbs fish sauce
4 kaffir lime leaves
1tbs lime juice
Coriander leaves for garnish

Method
1. Put chillies, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, coriander root, turmeric and oil in TMX and blend for 10 seconds on speed 7.
2. Spread a little bit of the paste on each fish fillet and set the rest aside (I leave off the kids fish altogether)
3. Put water in TMX bowl, rice in basket, veggies in bottom of Varoma and fish in foil on top tray in Varoma, cook for 14 mins / speed 4 / Varoma temp.
4. Put rice in thermoserver, check fish and veggies and continue cooking as required, set them aside when finished.
5. Empty out water of TMX bowl, put reserved paste back into TMX and sauté for 1 min / 100 degrees / speed 1.
6. Add coconut milk, fish sauce, kaffir leaves, lime juice and cook for 4 min / reverse / 90 degrees, speed 2 – 4 (depending on if you want kaffir in tact or chopped up a bit)
7. Serve rice, fish and veggies and top with curry sauce – OR put sauce in a bowl with fish and veggies and serve rice on the side, serve with fresh coriander.

Tips/Hints
This recipe is based on the EDC Asian-style fish fillets, combined with a Women’s Weekly (my fave!) recipe from their New Asian cookbook. It looks like a lot of ingredients but it is really worth it. You could also use prawns, chicken, pork or beef. If cooking for a crowd you could make the paste and cook the curry and fish in a saucepan while thermie is cooking rice and more veggies.

CP: I used Ling and cooked for approx 7 mins more cos in some parts the fish was thicker.

That does sound nice hopefulcook and I love WW cookbooks  :) :)  Any WW conversion has to be a good one if you can combine it with TMX methods.

Sounds very tasty Hopefulcook.  Well done on the recipe conversion  ;)
You could maybe cook the paste before adding it to the fish to lessen the raw garlic/ shallot taste...  that's what I've been doing when adding a paste to fish before steaming.

Thanks for this great recipe, it was enjoyed by the whole family.  I don't like the EDC Asian fish recipe (this recipe is compared to the EDC Asian recipe further up the posts) so don't let that put you off  ;)  Will be making this a regular as we always have fish in the freezer (DH is a mad keen fisherman).

Thanks for posting and converting this hopefulcook. It actually has some really lovely flavours and is a very different fish curry to the one I tried from recipe community. I will definitely be making it again.

I would've posted a photo if it wasn't for the fact that I kinda ruined the dish by using dried lemongrass as I forgot to buy the fresh stuff. I know it would ruin it and I still did it :-)) I also needed to cook the fish for a lot longer. I bought barramundi fillets which were very large and thick. Next time I will either cut these in half so they all fit in the top Varoma tray or buy a different kind of fish.

I used broccoli and carrot with this. What veges do others use?

I like all the Asian 'spinach' type veggies, eg bok choy, choy sum etc... Also fresh green beans are good. Not very traditional, but capsicum and zucchini work well. You could also use sugar snap peas (don't put in for too long) and baby corn (I am not a fan), but it would go well I reckon. Let me know how any of these combos go!

This sounds tasty. I will use some of the cod we caught when we were away.
