Simply Steps Yet Wonderful Flavors--Curry Fish

Since I learned how to make curry dish from the Indian lady on the Food Network, I would not stop making them. Curry chicken, curry shrimp, curry eggs and curry potato, I made curries with everything that I can think of. Among them, curry fish is my favorite.

Curry Fish
I am not an expert on Indian spices, and I don't need whole lot of them neither. I just went to a Indian grocery store and pick up some the basics: chili powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, coriander seed powder, and of course the garam masala.

Curry Fish
1 fish fillet, sliced into thin layers
2 tablespoon all purpose flour to coat fish
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 tablespoon coriander seed powder
1/2 tablespoon garam masala
1/4 cup yogurt
2 tablespoon chickpea flour
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup of water
salt to your taste
mint leaves for garnish.

1 Coat thinly sliced fish with flour, add salt and fry them in hot oil. Use high heat, it only takes seconds. No need to fully cook the fish through.
