Creamy Tomato Fish

Some time I get really bored with the same old fish curry, so I wanted to cook the fish in little different way. As a Bengali for our daily menu fish is a main part so something different with fish always a hit in my place. I used to cook Chicken and Paneer with cream but never added cream in fish curry, so I thought to cook them together. And the result is really finger licking. 

I used some normal ingredients but the fish curry turned out perfect. Whenever I am in my home town I love to go fish market, not only for buying but some time to see so many varieties of fishes. Some fishes are there which I never had before my marriage but now I really love to have all those fishes. I think the reason is while you see something new you feel like to taste it. 

Preparation time: 10 mints.
Cooking time: 20 mints.

1.Ruhu or Katla fish : 4 piece (u can cook with any other fish of your choice).
2.One small sliced onion.
3.One large chopped tomato.
4.Two clove garlic, one inch ginger.
5.Turemric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder (half tea spoon of each item).
6.Few mustard seeds.
7.Freshly crushed pepper.
8.Two green chili.
9.Pinch of garam masala powder.
10.Salt and sugar as per taste.
11.Two table spoon heavy cream.
12.sunflower oil for cooking.


Wash and clean the fish pieces, now marinate them with some turmeric powder and salt.

Make a nice paste with chopped tomato, green chili, ginger and garlic with all the spice powder (except garam masala, black pepper powder) with some water.

Now add some oil in a pan and lightly fry the fish pieces and remove from the heat.

Now take another pan and add some oil after the oil become hot add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start popped add the sliced onions.

Cook till the onions are transparent. Now add the masala mixture with some salt, and cook till the oil come out.
