Fish Head Curry!
Now, this Indian curry smells fantastic and will leave you wanting more but it should come with a warning label! It is a highly confronting meal, especially if you are new to it, as googly-eyed fish with sharp teeth stare out at you from the pot. It is certainly not a dish to have if you are in any way squirmish about real food for true connoisseurs will slurp and suck their way through the bones in search of the flavoursome flesh. I must admit that I much prefer soaking up the rich, orangey and very liquid curry sauce with my roti and satisfying my apetite that way instead. I get all the flavour without the additional labour :-)
To cater for my vegetarian friend, I made a mild dahl and gado-gado. I also made the star fruit chutney from Mangoes and Curry Leaves by Alford & Duguig. I love the presentation of this side dish and the flavour certainly complements the spiciness of the curry.
