Creamy fish curry with rice and coconut – Thermomix adaptation of a Hello Fresh recipe


Creamy fish curry with rice and coconut – Thermomix adaptation of a Hello Fresh recipe

With small kids to feed, we don’t like anything too hot in this house. What happens usually is that I cook everything mild and DH adds his own chilli flakes.

With this HelloFresh recipe, this is exactly what happened. When they say that this curry doesn’t bite as its north Indian spice is tempered by a creamy sauce with the added sweetness of coconut, they are absolutely right. There was nothing to be afraid of!

And DH was happy with his added chilli flakes too!

It is simply delicious and one I will do again and again.

Made with a hint of large family madness, a pinch of dinner parties and a scoop of easy and quick recipes, this blog is a well-round concoction (!!) of tried and tested food we love.

The gang is made off a mum, a dad, 4 girls (aged 17, 15, 6 & 6) and 1 dog. That’s a lot of people to please when it comes to dinner time.

The 2 main characters in the story are: Maud (the human mum) & Momo (the Thermomix), we were both born in France, both have a passion for cooking, simple, tasty food – cooking & baking makes us happy!

Coming soon:
