Olive oil/coconut oil

2 large onions, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

Thumb-sized piece of ginger, minced or grated

4 fillets of fish, diced

Green beans

Coconut milk 400ml

1 tsp turmeric

1 tbsp curry powder

Salt & pepper (to taste; no salt for baby)

1 cup of cooked rice to serve

Add the salt, pepper and turmeric to a bowl. Add the diced fish, and gently coat the fish in the spices, taking care not to break up the fish. 

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, and fry the fish until cooked through and slightly crispy, taking care not to break the fish apart. Remove the fish and set aside.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in the pan and fry the garlic, ginger and onion until soft and browned. Add the curry powder, and stir to coat.

Stir in the green beans and coconut milk. Bring the curry to the boil, then reduce the heat to low. 

Add the fish, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add salt to taste.
