 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       tb           Sunflower oil
    5                    Shallots, sliced
    4                    Garlic cloves,chopped
    1       tb           Mustard seeds
    1 1/2   lb           Firm white fish boned
                         -and cubed
                         (the recipe recommends
                         -shark, dog fish, monkfish,
                         -John Dory, swordfish, huss)
                         Flour for dusting
    1       t            Whole fenugreek
    1                    1 piece of cinnamon or
                         -cassia
    1       t            Tamarind pulp
    1       tb           Turmeric
    5       oz           Grated creamed cocomut
                         -(I used a can of coconut
                         -milk which I substituted
                         -for the water)
 
   Heat the oil and fry the shallots, garlic and mustard
   seeds for 1-2 mins.Dust the fish with flour and
   briefly seal both sides in the hot oil. Add the rest
   fo the spices and tamarind pulp, dissolved in enough
   water ( here is where I used the coconut milk)  to
   cover the fish. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, (
   omit this next step if using the coconut milk) then
   stir in the grated coconut until almalgamated into the
   sauce.
