Indian Vegetables with Fried Fish over Brown Rice

Here in Denmark we have found really good brown rice. If you’ve never tried it I highly recommend it. It takes about 45-50 minutes to cook, but it has a great flavor and texture. The kind we like and get here is also organic. So, I made the brown rice and then i had to decide what to put over it. Our fridge looked kind bare, but we still came up with a great meal.

 

Indian Vegetables

  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 leek
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 eggplant
  • salt/pepper
  • 6 carrots
  • 1/4- 1/3 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 2/3 cup peas
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • a dash of curry powder
  • oil

Saute the onions and the peppers in oil on high heat. Peel and cut the eggplant slices in 4ths. Add the eggplant and a little bit more oil and continue sauteing over high heat. Add salt and quite a bit of freshly ground pepper. After a few more minutes turn the heat down and cover the vegetables.  When the eggplant has cooked down add the chopped carrots and continue to heat over low heat for about 2 minutes. Watch that the carrots don’t get overcooked. Pull the vegetables off and leave covered. The carrots will keep cooking but hopefully wont get mushy. 1 minute before serving return to heat, add peas and the rest of the spices.

Fried Fish

  • white fish
  • flour (for breading)
  • salt

While the carrots are cooking over low heat, heat oil in a frying pan. Then coat the fish with flour. Fry the fish until golden brown. It will be flaky and tender. Sprinkle with salt.

Finally, layer the brown rice with the vegetables and add a piece of fried fish. Delicious!
