the fish in a single layer. Add the onions and fry until they are a pale
golden colour, 8-9 minutes. Stir frequently.

Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds. Add the coriander and fry for 1
minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the chilli powder and turmeric. Blend
the coconut milk powder with the hot water and add it to the spices. Add
the tamarind or lime juice, and remaining salt and simmer gently for 2-3
minutes or until tamarind has dissolved.

Arrange the fish in the pan in a single layer. Cover and simmer for 5
minutes. Turn the fish over, re-cover and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
