In a hot saucepan, add oil and garlic. Cook until the garlic has turned light brown. Now add in your onions and salt. Cover and cook for 10 minutes on medium heat. Stir occasionally and continue cooking until the onions are soft and broken down. Add in 1 cup of water. Cook on low flame for 5 minutes.

Now add in 1 and ½ tablespoon of my fish spice. You can add more of the fish spice depending on the quantity of your fish and vegetables. Stir on low heat for 10 minutes. If the curry dries up add few splashes of water and keep stirring.

Add the washed fish into your curry, mix carefully so the fish does not break. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Let the water from the fish to release. You can now put the flame a little higher, making sure the fish does not burn.
