Step 2

To make the fish balls, take a bowl, add the mashed fish, finely chopped onions, green chilies, coriander, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, cumin powder,garam masala, lemon juice, baking soda, salt. Take the bread slices, wet them in water and squeeze the water out to mix it all up and form a dough. Now make medium-sized balls and fry it in a kadhai till browned.

Step 3

For making the gravy, grind the onions and peanuts into a fine paste. Take a wok and add cumin and oil. When it splutters, add chopped onions and fry. Now add the ginger-garlic paste and fry again. Next add in the onion-peanut paste, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, tomato puree,garam masala and fry all this for two minutes before adding curd. Add curd and let the spices cook for a minute and then add water for the gravy. Boil on a medium flame.
