Machi Paka with Broccoli / Salmon and Broccoli in a Spicy Coconut Sauce

Saturday supper; to continue my Golden Jubilee Series I made Machi Paka or fish stewed in coconut sauce.  This is an East African Ismaili dish.  I added Broccoli to it to remind us of MHI and to make us all smile :)




Ingredients
1 tablespoon oil
1 leek or 1 medium onion; chopped
4 small potatoes; peeled and cut into halves
2-3 garlic cloves; minced
1 inch ginger; grated
2-3 green chillies; minced
1 large tomato; blanched; peeled and liquidised
1/4 tspn tumeric
1 tin coconut milk 
1 head of broccoli; cut in bite size pieces
1 lb of Salmon fillet of any firm fish; cut into 2 inch chunks
3-4 sprigs coriander for garnish; chopped fine



1.  Heat the oil in saucepan, add the leeks, and fry until soft, add the potatoes and continue frying
2. Add the garlic, ginger and chillies, stir and cook for a minute.  Add the tomatoes, mix and cook for a few minutes, add the tumeric.
3. Add the coconut, bring to boil, simmer, until the potatoes are cooked.
4. Add the broccoli, cook for 5-10 minutes, so that the broccoli is still slightly firm.
5. Add the fish, cook for a further 7-8 minutes, add the coriander and serve.
I served with basmati rice.

I love that recipe. We make fish stews quite often, with some plantains, coconut milk, yam or dasheen... and hot sauce.

Have a wonderful day and don't forget to check out chocolate-making kit giveaway on my site :)
