Tried a new curry rice dish

Ran out of potatoes and a lot of other things as the week came to an end so was searching the web for ideas to do something tasty with rice and a some cod tails from the freezer and on the allrecipes site found an idea which I adapted.
Curry Fish and Rice

Put a little olive oil and butter in a pan to warm, added curry spices (quarter teaspoon of turmeric, ground coriander, paprika, Gramum Marsala, cumin, etc) and cooked for a few minutes. Added a small onion, garlic and chopped peppers and cooked well.  350 grams of RISOTTO rice (it is much softer and creamy) and made sure the rice was coloured well. I had no peas or green beans but found some cherry tomatoes in the freezer (Xmas left oevrs) to throw in. Used a veg stock pot and topped with hot water.   As the oven was on with a pudding, I put it all in a casserole dish making sure there was some liquid to be absorbed, popped the fish on top, covered and cooked for 10 mins.  It was delicious and came from the stock cupboard and bits left over.


  1. Some of the best dishes come out of nothing, sounds lovely.

  2. It does sound lovely. Some of my best dishes have been what I call a hotch potch. And I wouldn't be able to repeat it if I tried!

    1. Don't think anything I cook is exactly the same as before. Family pretend not to notice!
