Wash the fish pieces and rub a little turmeric and salt on the
pieces. Keep for 10 minutes.
Heat a little oil in a non-stick wok or frying pan. Wait till the oil
is very hot, and fry the fish pieces a little (till they are light brown
in colour). Keep the fish pieces aside.
Then heat oil again. Put in the ginger paste/grated ginger, green
chillies, tomatoes, the onion pieces, and a little haldi. Stir fry for
about 15 minutes in medium heat till the onions are cooked a
little. Keep stirring as you saute.
When the consistency is thickish, add the fish pieces. Stir everything together (be careful about not breaking the fish pieces), add salt. Then add a little water (enough to cover the fish pieces) and the chopped cilantro.
Put the heat to high, and boil. If you are using a pan with a lid,
use the lid to cover the pan. This will seal the flavors. After 20 minutes turn off the heat.
