Malaysian Indian Fish Curry

My Malaysian Indian Fish Curry. Any different compared to the rest of the Indian fish curries from other parts of the world? I don't know. In fact better not for me to comment. But if you asking about this My Malaysian (Sambal Tumis Ikan Pari, Fried Kembung Assam Sauce & Chilli Soy Fish) Fish Curry, I can tell you pretty much. My own mix of curry paste (Assam Fish Curry) out of store bought spice powders and I added radish. Radish? Indeed. Have you tried? Fish curry with radish? You should. Wouldn't you agree that sometimes we want to vary the type of fish curry we make and and this, Malaysian Indian Fish Curry? Oh what a fish curry joy. Simply one of the best and simply for striking your fish curry food cord.

1 medium size pomfret/bawal hitam  (de-gut, rinse and cut into pieces)
1/2 white radish (remove skin and cut into pieces)
1 tomato (cut into 8 pieces)
1 1/2 tbsp tamarind/assam juice
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
3 sprigs curry leaves
1/4 cup oil
Salt for taste

For curry paste
1 tbsp fish curry powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
