    Wow, I LOVED this. Didn’t think the onions were that special. If I made onions again (and I agree with Anya that they’re not necessary) I’d probably use the recipe from Season, which is also very easy but better. I served this with the onions, naan, and yogurt. Cooked this in my wok. Absolutely fantastic dinner.

    Against the consensus, we both really, really did not like this recipe. Flavours were overpowering, and I cooked exactly as written. Would not make this one again.

    Definitely the most interesting use of fish sticks I've ever encountered. I cooked 18 fish sticks and doubled the spinach, but didn't increase the other ingredients. This served 3 over rice. Some plain yogurt would have been nice with it. Hubby liked the pickled onions, but I could skip them as there was plenty of acid from the lime juice.

    Hands down my favourite recipe of 2020. We make it weekly now! My only edit is to use 1tbsp of the mustard instead of 2, because I found it too spicy.

    I thought this sounded like a cross between trashy and delicious, and it was! The flavours somehow work together and the nostalgia of fishy fingers was a bonus. I served it with a dollop of kewpie and it was the perfect finish

    The pink pickled onions in the headnote to this recipe turn up in a few other things as well - the easiest version of them I have tried. The bhorta itself is good - I cooked some rice to have with it because I thought it sounded a bit insubstantial but it really isn't. The 2tbs of hot English mustard sounds like loads but it's a really mellow flavour.
