Fish Curry with Yogurt and Dijon Mustard

Today I am thinking of fish curry which is completely different. I didn't want to make the usual curry, but did want to try some different ingredients which are similar in taste, so I replaced coconut with yogurt and fenugreek powder with Dijon Mustard. Guess what, it tasted so good and game me a heads up for trying this new recipe. So thought of sharing it with you all, try and let me know how you liked it.

3 Cat Fish fillets cut into medium size peieces

2. Add onions and saute it until it becomes translucent.
3. Add all the spice powders except yogurt, dijon and tomato paste until the raw smell of the masala is gone.
