Cod Tikka Masala Curry

Fish isn't the natural choice when you think of a curry but as I love a curry and sometimes I dont want any meat then fish is a good alternative. This is packed full of goodness from the fish to the veg,has a little spice and some zesty lemon flavours so it's a great treat for the tastebuds. Its a family friendly recipe that you can tailor for your children's likes as well as the adults. Its also quick to cook which is always a bonus. Dont be put off by the spices- I've added my favourite blend but you can just use a tikka paste and skip step 1.Why not give this a try and let us know how you find it.

Peel and chop the pototoes into small chunks and add to the onions along with the cauliflower. Gently stir to get them coated in the curry mix
