Madhu's Mean Curry

1. About 5 fishes of the kind shown-cleaned and cut as depicted.
2. Roughly quarter cup oil (any vegetable oil should do).
3. A small handful of Madras onions (shallots), finely sliced.
4. 6 green chillies slit.
5. 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
6. One piece of ginger cut in juliennes.
7. a small handful of curry leaves.
8. A quarter teaspoon of turmeric.
9. A tablespoon of red chilli powder.
10. A tablespoon of coriander powder.
11. A pinch of fenugreek seeds.
12. Salt to taste.
13. Some 4-5 pieces of cocum.

1. Heat the oil in the clay pot.
2. Add the onions, green chillies, ginger, garlic and curry leaves. Saute for a couple of minutes.
3. Lower the fire. Add the fenugreek seeds and the moistened powders (add some water to the powders before putting them in the pot so that they do not burn).
4. Let it all fry well until there is a good smell-add a bit of water now and then to prevent burning.
5. Add the fish, cocum torn into pieces and enough water to cover the fishes.
6. Bring to a boil and cover and let it cook.
