I've been wanting to make fish masala for a long time. I used to order it occasionally at our now-closed local Indian restaurant. My first-ever blog post was channa masala, and I've wanted to make it with fish ever since. I used cod, since that was what I happened to have in the freezer. Any mild, white fish would work, though. I made the sauce using the same recipe as the channa masala. Instead of adding the chickpeas, I put in some cauliflower, peas and the fish. I pan-seared the fish first, then added it to the sauce. I let it simmer for a while (1/2 hour, maybe?), then turned the heat completely off. We ate it a half-an-hour later. The fish had gotten really tender and kind of fell into chunks. We had it over jasmine rice. I thought it was very good, and Sleek thought it was out-of-control good. So, I consider it a success.
I finally got Radiohead's In Rainbows album on my iPod. I've been listening to it like crazy. It's so damn good. You can link to download the album from their myspace page. (You know, you can pay whatever you want for it.) They also have quite a few songs from the album available for play on their myspace page.
Be prepared for some heavy posting on Chez Mama. Between now and Christmas I'm doing a "12 Days of Goodies" segment. I hope I'm not overly-ambitious!
