Canned Mackerel Curry

Canned Mackerel 400g in Tomato Sauce. (I used DELMAGE)
1onion finely sliced
3 cloves garlic grounded
1'' ginger piece ground
2 green chillies chopped
some curry leaves
coconut milk 1 cup
water 1/2cup
red chillie powder 1tsp
curry powder 1/2tsp
1/2tsp pepper power
salt to taste
1-2tbsp sunflower oil

Separate the Mackerel and tomato sauce and keep aside.
Heat oil in pan and when heated well add curry leaves,green chillie and onions and fry till almost turning golden in color.
Add ginger, garlic stir and fry for a minute.
Add chillie powder, pepper and curry powder and stir in 30sec.
splash little water to avoid the paste getting burned.The water will sizzle away.
Add the tomato sauce and 1/2 cf of water and cook for 5 minutes.
Add in the Mackerel and break each piece in half.
Cook till they are almost done and add coconut milk to finish off.
Bring the curry to boil and simmer till done.
Serve with rice or bread.
