I first learnt how to make my own curry powder at a cooking course I did, which was run by The Seventh Day Adventist group.
I did this when I was living in the country and found it very interesting, and it was free!
In this home made curry, there is the addition of coconut in the spices, and it is a very tasty, and does not taste like the bought curry powders or pastes.
I ordered snapper for the fish however I must have pressed a wrong button as I received Barramundi which I do not normally buy. This fish, although imported, was delicious.
Make sure you have all your ingredients ready before you start as there are quite a few ingredients in this recipe.
The great part is that it does not take long to cook.
