  1. Blitz the fish to a smooth paste in a food processor. Put in a bowl and stir in the onion, garlic, chilli, curry paste, cornflour and coriander. Season and mix well.
  2. Divide the mix into 12 equal pieces and shape into balls. Thread onto small skewers (soaked beforehand if wooden), 2 balls per skewer. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Fry the kebabs for 2 mins each side until golden, crispy and cooked through. You may need to work in batches.
  3. To make the dip, mix the yogurt in a small bowl with the cumin, most of the mint leaves, the tomato, cucumber and onion.
  4. Pile the salad leaves on a serving plate and lay the skewers on top. Sprinkle over the remaining mint and serve with the dip.

Tip: Leave out the chilli to make these fish kebabs a hit with the kids.
