Japanese curry (or so they say on the package!!!)

I'm not so fond of ready made food. But sometimes, once in a while, a get very lazy (Ah! I'm always lazy!!!) and use industrial stuff, and that normally happens when I do not read the list of the ingredients BEFORE I buy it... And that doesn't happen so often... But sometimes, you know, you find yourself in the aisles of one of the biggest Chinese supermarket in town, you see colourful stuff, written with nice ideograms, with a nice picture on the package and you think: Well, why shouldn't I buy it???
And that's what I did... And of course, once I buy it, I have to use it (I hate to waste food)...
And it wasn't so bad, at all... It tasted like some lousy Indian restaurant (don't ask my why they make in Japan a curry mix that tastes like Indian curry)... And that's not exactly comforting... But you know, as long as you don't read the list of the ingredients... Really, it wasn't bad at all... And we are still alive... It was OK... You know, as long as you add fresh ingredients... No, it tasted OK, really...

1 tablespoon of oil
1 red pepper
2 little potatoes
1 onion
360 ml of water
1/2 package of Tasty Curry Sauce Mix, Medium Hot
250 g chosen fish, in chunks (I used cod)

Cut red pepper, onion and potatoes (peeled) in thick stripes. Stir fry the onion with the oil, add the vegetables, stir fry for few minutes and add water. Once the vegetables are cooked, add the curry stuff and the fish. stir and cook for 5-10 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Serve immediately, with some rice.
