Coconut Fish Curry

I have been craving warming yet healthy and nourishing food this winter. So I came up with this recipe. It looks amazing, bursts with Indian flavors and is a treat to your body. I love when comfort food is packed with nutrients and leaves you feeling energized. The bright yellow colour comes from curcuminoids in turmeric, which have anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial to your health.
