Eating the Globe: Maldives

Three-day weekend, let's cook something time consuming, semi-complicated, and messy. This is mas riha, or fish curry. I used swordfish. The curry paste was fun to make with a blender. It turned out okay. With K being pregnant, I overcooked the fish out of an abundance of caution. I also went easy on the spices. I found it a bit bland; she still ended up with heartburn.

Here is the recipe.

I always get the Maldives and Mauritius confused. I thought for sure that the Maldives was closer to Africa. Nope. It's essentially a part of South Asia.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Algeria, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Morocco, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa
Asia: Afghanistan, Armenia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, China, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam, Yemen
Europe: Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Czechia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden
