Swahili Fish Curry

www.xawaash.com

When we started this blog, one of our objectives was to feature recipes from neighbouring countries. This is one such recipe that is popular among the Swahili-speaking peoples of East Africa. We added a few touches of our own and we simplified the recipe. This dish is very mild and the flavours are more subtle than the original recipe.

An important ingredient in Swahili cuisine is fresh coconut milk. In this recipe, we used canned coconut milk and we added it a little early. This toned down the coconut flavour and it did not overpower the fish.

Serve with Potato & Cumin Rice.

Curry de Poisson Swahili

www.xawaash.com

Quand nous avons lancé ce blog, un de nos objectifs était de présenter des recettes de pays voisins. Cette recette en est une, qui est populaire parmi les gens parlant le Swahili en Afrique de l’Est. Nous avons ajouté quelques touches personnelles et avons simplifié la recette. Ce plat n’est pas piquant du tout et les arômes sont plus subtils que la recette originale.

Un ingrédient important de la cuisine Swahili est le lait de coco frais. Dans cette recette, nous avons utilisé du lait de coco en boite et nous l’avons incorporé assez tôt dans la préparation. Ce qui atténue le parfum de noix de coco et ne couvre pas le goût du poisson.

Servir avec Pilaf de Riz aux Pommes de Terre et au Cumin.

    1. If i don’t hv the Coconut milk, wat can I use as an alternative?!
    2. I used to hear that having milk with fish is not good for the health, thu, i tried to check the accuracy of this issue, but found that some say its not good and others say there is no problem with having milk with fish. So wat do u think?
    Thank u very much for ur great effort … Jazakum Allah kheiran,

      Wacalaykum Assalaam Waraxmatullaahi Wabarakaatuhu,

      You cannot replace the taste of the coconut, but you can try evaporated milk and tamarind.

      Many years back in Somalia, we asked a doctor and he said there is no harm in combining milk and fish. It is just a myth. You could call it Old Husbands’ Tales. :)

      PS: Check Xawaash even before going to work :)

    Hi

    I love your site, this recipe was easy to cook, maybe it was my lack of skills but I found the flavouring to be too mild, would you mind putting up the other recipe?

    Many thanks

      It was our intention to make it a mild dish. God willing, we will post spicier curries. Thank you.

    Can I add vegetable seasoning in the beginning because I do not have xawaah sister.

    • A&L
      September 17, 2012 | 11:52 pm

      The vegetable seasoning has salt in it, we use it in place of salt. You cannot use it twice. Use ground coriander if you don’t have cumin. If you don’t have both, use curry powder instead.

    And once I add vegetable seasoning in the beginning do I add it again the second time around when you did?
