4 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1kg blue eye fillet, cut into 3cm pieces
1 tbsp cornflour

Heat 2 tbsp of oil over high heat, add ground cumin and cook until fragrant. Reduce heat to medium, add onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened and slightly caramelised.

Add remaining spices and cook for 1 minute, then add tomatoes and cook for a few minutes until they soften and start to break up.

Add water and stir to combine. Continue cooking to thicken sauce.

In a bowl, mix cornflour with salt and black pepper. Dip to coat fish pieces.
