Salt to taste
Garam masala pinch

Clean fish and apply little haldi and keep aside.
In asmall pan add 3 sps oil and fry fish on both sides for 2 mits.
This process is done to avoid the fish pieces to break while cooking in the tamrind sauce.
In pan heat oil and add chopped onions and saute for few mits.
Now add chopped green onions and green chillies.
Fry till onions turn golden brown and add haldi, salt, chilli powder, cumin and dhaniya powder.
Mix well and add tamrind juice.
Now cook on medium flame till oil appears on the top of juice.
Now add fish pieces and cook for 8 to 10mits. on low flame.
Do not turn the fish pieces, they tend to break easily.
Before turning off the flame sprinkle little garam masala on top and mix gently.
Garnish with cilantro and serve hot with rice.
