2tsp fresh lime juice
1tbsp grounded pepper
1tsp salt

salt to taste
chopped coriander leaves

Preparation Methods:
Heat a heavy bottom wok with 2tbsp oil on medium flame and splutter curry leaves,cumin ,mustard and fenugreek seeds followed by the sliced garlic cloves,chopped onions and tomato. Once the onions becomes golden brown -pour in the pulsed mixture. If the mixture is too thick dilute with the hot water. Once it starts to boil add the marinate fish and reduce the flame to low and cover the wok with a lid. Don't stir as it will break the fish. Once the curry thickens adjust the level of salt and remove from flame. Serve hot with chopped coriander as desired and my favorite combination is to have them with lime rice or tamarind rice.
