  2. For green paste take all ingredients from 3 to 13 (1/2 onion, chilies, garlic, ginger, cloves, cardamom, peppercorn, tamarind, coriander seeds, coriander leaves, cinnamon, cumin). Grind all of them into a processor until smooth paste is formed. Add water if required. Keep this paste aside.
  3. Take oil in a big wok add oil. Once oil is hot saute ½ chopped onion. Saute until light brown in color on low heat.
  4. Now add the green paste along with chopped tomato chunks. Saute for 3 to 4 mins on low heat. Add turmeric and dhaniya powder. Mix all well.
  5. Add water as consistency required. Let this boil for another 5 mins.
  6. Its time to add bombay ducks. Now gently saute as the fish might break.
  7. Finally add salt and semi cover with a lid. Let the curry cook for 5 mins more. Check the seasoning switch off the gas. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with rice Or bread.
1. You could use any fish instead of bombay duck fish.
2. Vegans can use potatoes, aubergines instead of fish.
3. If tamarind is not available you could use 4 kokams.
