Curried Lemongrass Fish

Seriously, after sharing a whole list of fish recipes, I am lost on what to write. So the best will be a synopsis about this dish - crispy fried fish in a lemongrass curried gravy.

4 pieces (abt 370g) Indian Mackerel or any other fish fillet - mix with 1 tsp of turmeric/kunyit powder, 1/2 tbsp rice flour and salt to taste.
 1 inch ginger - cut into thin stripes
5 garlic - sliced thinly
5 shallots - sliced thinly
2 lemongrass - crushed/smashed
1 (abt 100g) tomato - sliced
2 tbsp plain chilly powder - mix with some water
2 stalks of coriander leaves - sliced
1 tbsp lemon/lime juice
Salt to taste
oil for frying

Fry fish until golden brown and keep aside.
Leave about 3 tbsp oil in the same pan.
Saute ginger, garlic and shallots. 
Put in lemongrass and chilli powder.  Stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits. 
Add fish, lime juice, coriander leaves and salt.
Gently stir a couple of times and dish out.
