Turmeric Fish and Potato Stew. Any weather works for this warm and mildly spiced any-day-of-the week one pot meal. A super speedy curry packed full of flavour and nourishing ingredients. Guaranteed to keep you warm and toasty from the inside.

Ingredients − Serves 2

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely sliced
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp Latasha’s Kitchen Turmeric Spice Magic
  • Curry leaves from 2 sprigs
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 2 cups coconut milk or use half coconut milk and half coconut cream
  • 400 g potatoes, parboiled and diced
  • 400 g piece of white fish, diced
  • 70 g green beans
  • 1 bunch broccolini, cut into 3 cm lengths
  • Small bunch fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 long red chillies, split and sliced (optional)
  • Limes
  • Basmati rice (to serve)


  1. Sauté mustard seeds and curry leaves over medium heat until seeds start to pop and are aromatic. Add onion, pinch of salt and cook on low for 8 minutes until translucent and just starting to brown. Add the ginger, garlic and Latasha’s Kitchen Turmeric Spice Magic blend, and cook, stirring gently for 3 minutes
  2. Slowly stir in the coconut milk, scraping up the spices and onion from the bottom of the saucepan. Bring the pan to a gentle simmer.
  3. Add the fish, parboiled potatoes, green beans and broccolini, a pinch of salt and gently cook for about 6-8 minutes, or until the fish and beans are cooked. Serve over rice with a sprinkle of fresh coriander, fresh chillies and lime.


  • Parboil the potatoes with skin on for about 30 minutes. Cool, peel then dice.
  • I normally favour Royal Blue or Dutch Cream potatoes for my curries.
  • If you prefer a richer sauce, swap the coconut milk for coconut cream or use half and half. Use a good brand like Ayam where 99% of the content is coconut.
  • Use any firm white fish that you prefer. I usually go for pink or red snapper, king fish, swordfish, Spanish mackerel or cod.
  • Don’t over salt the dish, as the fish is already quite salty and the Turmeric Spice Magic blend contains salt.
