1 large pomfret/ mackerel or any fleshy fish of your choice
2 big onions sliced
2 big tomatoes chopped
3 cloves of garlic chopped
4-5Tbsp Fish curry powder ( mix this in a little water to form a paste)
lime size tamarind pulp mixed with 1 small bowl of water
5 tbsp evaporated milk ( or coconut cream )
To sauté (A)
½ tsp mustard seeds
½ tsp fenugreek seeds
A few curry leaves
Salt to taste
1.Heat oil in a earthen pot and fry the (A) well.
2.Now add sliced onions and garlic. Fry till there is aroma.
3.Then add tomatoes and the curry powder. Fry well till the oil separates
from the spices.
4.Add the tamarind juice and 1 large bowl of water. Simmer for 15 minutes
5.Now add the milk.
6.Then add the fish and your choice of vegetable such as ladies finger or brinjal.
7.Season with some salt.

This dish improves with keeping. Green mangoes can also be added but you have to reduce the tamarind juice.
