  • Keep aside.
  • Heat 3 tsp oil in a non-stick skillet.
  • Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds in the oil.
  • When it starts to sputter, add fenugreek seeds; once you get a sweet and sour flavour and the seeds turn golden brown, add curry leaves and onion.
  • Add a pinch of salt so that the onion gets cooked quickly.
  • When onion turns golden brown, add tomato and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add cumin powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder, cook for a minute.
  • Add the mixture of tamarind juice; leave it for a couple of minutes till the sauce is well cooked. (You should not get any smell of tamarind once properly cooked).
  • Add a pinch of sugar while the sauce is simmering.
  • Add fish at the end, cook for another 10 minutes in medium flame.
  • Serve hot with rice.
