  • Heat oil in a pan, fry the potato pieces with a pinch of salt. Keep aside.
  • In the same oil, add bay leaf and all the whole spices under garam masala.When they start to crackle, add chopped onions.
  • When onions turn brown, add ginger-garlic paste, stir for a minute, then add tomatoes, green chillies, turmeric, chilli and coriander powder.
  • Add 2 tablespoons water in it and fry the masala well. Add fried potato pieces, mashed up fish and fish cooked water. Stir fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add little more water, about 1/3 cup. Season with salt and cover with a lid.
