  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.
