1 Sprinkle both sides of the fish fillets with spices and set aside for a few minutes. In a bowl, place yoghurt, beetroot and spring onions and stir to combine. Season with cracked black pepper. Cover and chill.
2 In a separate bowl, combine cucumber and capsicum. In a small jug, whisk together olive oil, vinegar and fresh coriander. Season with black pepper and add to the cucumber salad. Toss to combine. Cover and chill until required.
3 Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and set over a medium heat. Cook fish for 2-3 minutes each side, or until fish flakes easily with the tip of a fork.
4 Divide cucumber salad among 4 plates and top with spiced fish. Serve with a dollop of beetroot raita and 2 poppadums on the side. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free poppadums and check spices and yoghurt are gluten free.
To cook the poppadums in the microwave, line the microwave turntable with a sheet of paper towel. Place 4 poppadums evenly around the edge of the turntable. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until poppadums are puffed. They will crisp on cooling. Repeat with remaining 4 poppadums.
