I'm always put off making a curry from scratch as I'd need to go and buy various spices, coconut milk etc. Does anyone have a fish or veggie curry recipe that's simple and doesn't mean buying loads of ingredients I personally will only use for curry - obviously realize I'll have to buy one or two things though.

You could try making one with a bought spice paste and coconut milk to start with? Otherwise, as a minimum I'd buy turmeric, cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Then you could just buy in fresh chillis ginger and coriander as needed.

This is delicious and the slices are multi use so hopefully not an extra. www.food.com/recipe/mutter-paneer-indian-cheese-curry-173381 Or a chickpea curry - similar spices too

I make a lentil and spinach curry with Thai red curry paste (the Thai taste one)

Briefly -
1-1/12 tbs curry paste heated in oil for a couple of minutes.

Add shallots and a big handful of chopped fresh coriander, or as much as you can bear the taste. I also add chilli flakes. Heat for another couple of minutes.
Add a large blob of tomato purée.
Add 250g red lentils and coat with what's in the pan.
Add 500mls water and bring to the boil.
Once bubbling add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes and a diced up butternut squash and reduce to simmer along for 20/25 mins.
5 mins prior to serving add a bag of baby spinach to wilt.
Serve immediately with toasted pitta.

I also add chicken occasionally at the start.

If you want really simple, this fish one is pretty good, you only need curry paste in addition to a few store cupboard ingredients...

Another simple one is this, with loads of veg but you can of course adapt that to suit. Also uses curry paste, plus coconut milk and passata. Be warned, it makes loads!...
