Easy Indian salmon curry recipe made spicy with chili powder, tomatoes, and onion. This easy weeknight meal can be made in under 30 minutes. Not necessary to grind the Indian spices. So, no hassles, which helps you to drive with lesser effort.
The Indian salmon curry recipe is the one which I've been waiting to make for the last two weeks. We generally make seafood once a week. And for the last couple of weeks, we have been grilling them as the weather has been so pleasant.
We are in the late spring season, and it is getting colder here. And it is cloudy and raining at times. In this type of climate, I only want to make spicy and rich salmon gravy, which would be the perfect meal for this weather.

The taste of the curry mainly depends on the quality of the seafood. So, check whether it is fresh to make before using it. New and good seafood tastes great even with minimal preparations.
