Instructions
  1. Clean the fish pieces and marinate them in 1/2 tsp each of salt and turmeric.
  2. Grate the onion, chop tomatoes and green chilies.
  3. Mix the curd and all dry masalas and beat it well to form a paste.
  4. Mix the onion, tomato and chillies in the curd paste.
  5. Pour this mixture over the fish and drizzle about 2 tbsp of mustard oil over it.
  6. Coat the fish with this mixture and let it marinate for about an hour. It is advised that you marinate the fish in a vessel that you can use for cooking too.
  7. After marination, put the vessel over a very low flame on a gas stove. This dish will be cooked over a low flame and no water is to be added.
  8. Check on the fish, occasionally gently flipping it over. You will notice that the dish will release a lot of water. Cook till all the water evaporates and the masala paste is slightly browned at the bottom.
  9. Once done, transfer it to a serving plate. Don't forget to scrape off the browned masala bit from the pan.
  10. Serve it with hot rice.
