  1. Dry roast all the spices for the fish masala: red chilli, coriander, peppercorns, cumin, dry ginger, fenugreek and curry leaves. 
  2. Let cool and grind to a powder and marinate the fish pieces with this spice mix, lemon juice and turmeric powder. Keep aside for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Heat mustard oil and fry the fish pieces in the oil for about 5 minutes, turning on both sides and carefully so as to not break the fish pieces. 

  4. Keep the fried fish aside. 

  5. Prepare the curry: heat oil and crackle the mustard seeds and add the dry red chilli. Add the chopped onion and fry until the onions get transparent.
  6. Add the ginger-garlic paste and mix well, fry until the raw smell goes away. Add the tomatoes and sprinkle salt, let cook until the tomatoes are completely soft. 
  7. Add red chilli powder, mango powder and garam masala. Mix well and add the tamarind extract. Mix everything and add about a cup of water and cover. Let cook on medium flame. 
  8. Remove cover and add the fried fish pieces and turn carefully to coat with the curry and masala. Turn off the flame after 2 minutes and cover.
  9. Remove cover after 10 minutes, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot !!
