Bombay Fish Curry

Margaret Mead was once quoted as saying, it is easier to change a man's religion than his diet. I think I agree. Between trying to get my boyfriend, Stephen and my dad to start eating healthier, sometimes I feel like I am beating my head against a wall. Stephen is starting to make some (slow) progress. And I'm very proud of him for his small changes. He has stopped eating corn and peanuts, and is trying to make better choices with the his protein intake. So I was very excited to make this fish curry for him and to throw as many veggies in there as I could. He only slightly complained about the amount of veggies.

  1. Looks excellent especially the no dairy or soy! Yummo!!

  2. What a lovely dish. The colors are so bright they warm even this cold and wet November day. While I've been here often, I don't comment as often as I should. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy the time I spend here. I never leave empty handed. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
