s8 posted one here a while ago. I cut and paste it and printed it out because he said it was really good (and he seems to know what he is doing in the kitchen). Please make it and report back.

The curry powder recipe is in the link:

Serves 4
Ingredients

4 x 225g/8oz salmon steaks
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
8 fresh curry leaves
2 small pieces rampe (screwpine), optional
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp sri lankan curry powder (see below)
2 medium-sized tomatoes , skinned and chopped
50ml/2fl oz tamarind liquid
1 x 400ml can coconut milk
salt
Asian-style chutneysuch as mango, lime, aubergine or tamarind to serve

The fish curry was awesome! I use coho and ling cod, next time I will just use the salmon or perhaps mussels and clams
The flavor profile was great but think it needs a little heat. Should I add cayenne or perhaps some Thai curry paste?
Made my own curry powder, so easy

I have a link on my laptop to "how to make a perfect Goan fish curry" which I will post later today when I get back to my laptop. I think I got the link here in the first place, though, so if you search you may be able to find it. Maybe in the last few pages of that epic food thread that used to be on Albo's street, and that I assume was moved over here?

My prawn curry recipe would work with firm fish, like monkfish.

In a little oil (coconut, peanut, sunflower) fry 4 or 5 cardamon pods, a teaspoon of mustard seeds and a 2 inch piece of cinnamon or cassia. Add chopped onions, finely chopped garlic, chopped fresh chillies and grated fresh ginger and continue frying over a medium heat until the onions are soft and golden. Add turmeric, anise/fennel seeds and some dried chillies snipped into pieces and continue to fry. Add a 400ml can of coconut milk and the fish/prawns and cook for a further 5-10 minutes. Add a squeeze of lime juice and some chopped coriander and serve with rice, onion salad and poppadoms.
Wibble.

Thanks, ladies.
I'll have to google rampe (screwpine), though.

I'll make one of these tomorrow, depending what kind of fish I get at the market. It's cold and miserable outside and I need something rich and hot and satisfying. But since I don't have a lover within reach, a fish curry will have to do. ;)

Here is what s8 said about screwpine:

We have a really good spice shop in town now and they carry a Sri Lankan curry powder that I like. According to google screwpine = pandanus leaves, which the place that carries curry leaves sometimes has as well, but I'm planning to just not use it.

I may use some amchur powder+lime in place of the tamarind juice. Not the same thing but I don't care, as I usually use recipes as general guides - I cook with gay abandon. The tamarind paste in water would probably work fine, though.

Screwpine is called pandan here. The leaves are often used in desserts. They make gula melaka green.

Thanks, Scrubb. I ended up making the one from your link. It was delicious.
I don't like prawns anymore for some reason, so I only used red scorpionfish.

I had a look at that recipe - it seemed interesting.

I spent the better part of the weekend gathering all the ingredients to make it.

I have to say I was disappointed.

The one from Scrubb's link? I thought it was great. What do you think it lacked?

Anyone who's been anywhere near Goa, or eaten at traditional Goanese restuarant will tell you that it lacked authenticity.

heh
I made it because I could get all the ingredients pretty easily. Well, I thought I'd be able to get them, but then I couldn't find curry leaves. I can't remember where I got them the last times.
BUT I found shrimp paste while I was looking for them, so it's all good.
