    INGREDIENTS
    7oz sea bass fillet

    For the sag aloo (makes four portions)
    Vegetable oil
    1 onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves
    1tsp white cumin seeds
    1tsp mustard seeds
    ½ tsp black cumin seeds
    ½ tsp fenugreek
    3 dried red chillies, ground
    1tsp ground turmeric
    1tsp ground coriander
    350g peeled King Edward potatoes, cut into large dice
    4 generous handfuls of baby spinach

    For the onion bhaji (four portions)
    1 large onion, finely sliced
    Salt
    ½ tsp turmeric
    ¼ tsp dried ground chilli
    ¼ tsp ground cumin
    ¼ tsp ground fenugreek seeds
    110g chickpea flour (approximately)

    For the tomato jam (makes about 20 portions)
    1lb tomatoes cut into six wedges each
    150ml water
    150ml white wine vinegar
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    8oz sugar
    4 ground red chillies
    2tsp mustard seeds

    METHOD
    To make the sag aloo, fry the onion and garlic cloves in vegetable oil until brown. Add the spices and potatoes, cover with water and boil until cooked. When the potatoes are cooked and the mixture is almost dry, add the baby spinach.

    For the onion bhaji, finely slice the onion and rub with a little salt. Add turmeric, chilli, cumin and fenugreek and mix. Then mix in a little chickpea flour until the mixture is dry. Add water to loosen it up. Fry.

    To make the tomato jam, put all the ingredients in a pan and boil until it reaches a jam consistency. Cool and store.

    To cook the sea bass, pan-fry the fish, skin side down, for three to four minutes until the skin is crisp. Turn the fish over and cook for a further one to two minutes. Serve with sag aloo, onion bhaji, tomato jam and dress with a little yogurt and curry oil.
