Add sliced green chillies

then add the masalas and little water

add the tamarind pulp and cook it in medium flame
once the gravy boiled add the cleaned fish to it 
allow it to boil for 3 min
check the seasoning and consistency before removing from flame

Never cover with a lid after the fish is added to the curry. It will mush up.
The curry gets diluted when the fish is slided in.
So the consistency has to be little thick before adding the fish
