  • Step 1

    Pre-heat the cooking pot for 5 minutes using the SAUTÉ function on LO:MD. Add the 2 star anise and dry roast until fragrant. Remove and place into a bullet style blender along with the garlic, ginger, melted coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, water, and the rest of the spices except for the mustard seeds, until a smooth paste is formed. Alternatively grind in a pestle and mortar.

  • Step 2

    Place the spice paste into the cooking pot along with the mustard seeds and fry for 3 minutes stirring frequently. Add the diced onion and fry for a further 3 to 5 minutes until the onion has softened.

  • Step 3

    Add the remaining ingredients except for the fish and coriander and increase the temperature to MD. Simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Add the fish, secure the pressure lid and set the valve to the SEAL position. Select PRESSURE, set the temperature to LO and the time to 3 minutes. Select START/STOP. Once the programme has finished running carefully quick release the pressure.

  • Step 5

    Remove the cooking pot from the unit and leave to cool for 5 minutes before stirring in the chopped coriander. Add extra sea salt and lime juice to taste if you wish.

  • Step 6

    Whilst the curry is cooling prepare the tark by melting the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the black mustard seeds and curry leaves, cooking until the seeds start popping in the pan. Pour over the curry once served and listen to it sizzle!
