Method

  1. Warm the oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Cook the onion until it starts to soften, then add the cumin and garlic and cook for a further minute, stirring continuously.
  2. Reduce the heat and add the pepper, potatoes and chilli (optional) and cook for 3–4 minutes, again stirring continuously.
  3. Add the stock, water and black pepper. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat. Cover the pan and leave to simmer for 15 minutes (10 minutes if using frozen fish).
  4. Add the fillets of fish, peas and sweetcorn and cook over a low heat – not allowing the stew to boil – for 6–10 minutes (about 15 minutes if using frozen fish), until the fish is cooked. Remove from heat and gently stir through the yoghurt and coriander (optional). Serve immediately.

Serving suggestion: Serve with a side of steamed green vegetables.

Reduced-fat coconut milk could be used in place of the yoghurt to give this healthy meal a more authentic flavour. Add this 5 minutes before the end of cooking.
