Due to strong trade deals with India dating back to the 19th century, Tanzania sees a lot of Indian influence in its cooking. This beautifully spiced fish curry contains classic Indian ingredients such as curry powder, garam masala and coconut milk. Add more chilli powder if you prefer a punchier curry!

1
Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions, curry powder, chilli powder, turmeric and ground coriander. Sauté on a low heat until softened, for about 7 minutes
2
Stir in the ginger and garlic paste and cook out for a further couple of minutes
3
Add the chopped tomatoes and cook down for 5 minutes, stirring so they don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Add the coconut milk and simmer for 30 minutes
4
Stir in the tamarind paste then add the fish pieces, making sure they are submerged in the sauce. Cover with a lid and leave to cook for 7 minutes
5
Serve hot with a generous handful of chopped coriander
