Salmon, Mackerel and Potato Curry

I love spices, I love curry, and I love the combination of the oily fish and the potatoes,

I'm going to dedicate this recipe to a good friend of mine Anjula Devi, she's an absolute genius with spicing foods just right, when we finally get to meet, I'll cook this for her, I hope she approves!!!!

The recipe and method seem to be quite complicated, when I suppose we'd normally just throw everything in and let it do it's thing!!! ( sorry Anjula! I know there's more to it than that) but by cooking the fish and potatoes separately you don't end up with a gooey mess
