Ingredients

For the curry sauce
For the fish and chips

Preparation method

  1. For the curry sauce, heat a large frying pan until hot, add the butter, onion and chillies and cook for 10 minutes, or until golden-brown and softened.

  2. Add the plain flour and curry powder and cook for a couple of minutes.

  3. Add the cream and chicken stock, return to a simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes.

  4. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir through the coriander and finish with the lemon juice.

  5. For the fish and chips, preheat a deep-fat fryer to 190C/375F. (CAUTION: Hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended).

  6. Meanwhile, sprinkle the yeast and sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour over the beer and vinegar and whisk in the flour and salt. Leave to ferment – it is ready to use when the mixture starts to bubble.

  7. Dip the sole fillets into the batter and deep fry until golden-brown and cooked through – about 3-4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  8. Add the potatoes to the deep-fat fryer and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown and crisp. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on kitchen paper. Season with a little salt.

  9. Serve the fish and chips on serving plates with the curry sauce in a jug. Pour the sauce over the fish and chips just before serving.
