Zanzibar Curry with fried fish and spicy rice by Annika Ribeiro

On our trip to Zanzibar we visited the Big Body with Tatata Spice Farm and got to know the friendly community. We went to cook with the local women and want to share with you their most traditional and common dish!

For the Curry Sauce:
- 2 Carrots
- 4 small Potatos
- 3 garlic gloves
- 3 Tomatoes
- 2 Aubergine
- 1 small green pepper
- 1 package tomatoe paste
- 1 can coconut milk
- coarse sea salt
- spices: cinamon powder, ginger and cummin seeds

Peel the carrots, potatoes and aubergine and onion. Now you cut them and the tomatoes and pepper in small pieces. First you start cooking the tomatoes in a bit of water. After a few minutes you add the other vegetables.

After that you peel the garlic cloves and mix together with the salt. Traditionally, you make the mixture with a mortar. Of course you can also do this with a blender or even with a spoon.

Once you added this to the vegetables, you cook everything for around 30 minutes (depending on the size of your vegetables). The vegetables need to be cooked very well.

Once everything is cooked until very soft you can add the coconut sauce, tomato paste and spices and simmer a bit more.

For the rice:
- Coconut oil
- 2 Cinamon sticks
- Cumin seeds
- Cardamon seeds cup rice

In a pan you heat the oil and add the spices. You let it cook for three minutes. Now you add the garlic salt mixture you prepared for the curry sauce and add two cups of water. Once it is boiling you add the cup
of rice. Mix everything well. When the water is absorbed the rice should rest a bit more with a lit on top.

- 4 sardines
- coconut oil to fry

First you clean the fish a bit and cut it into stripes. No need to remove the skin.

Now you add a lot of oil to fry the fish. We recommend you to use coconut oil. Once the oil is hot you add the fish and fry it for 5-10 minutes.

Serve everythig on a plate and enjoy!
