Canned Sardine Curry

Yesterday, I was thinking of curry fish but too bad I didn't have any suitable fish in the freezer that could be used for curry.  Then, I remembered a friend gave me sardine curry sandwiches sometimes back and it struck on me to cook fish curry with canned sardines.  So, if you don't mind something weird, do give this a try.  It is yummy...

Ingredients :
- 1 canned sardine
- 1 small packet of fish curry powder (25gm)
- 1 sprig of curry leaves
- 2 tomatoes (washed and cut)
- 1 big bombay onion (washed and sliced)
- 1 big red onion (washed and sliced)
- 1 whole garlic (washed and finely chopped)
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or tamarind juice - asam jawa)

Seasonings : ( no exact measurement as I only added a little of each spices)
- jintan putih (fennel seed)
- jintan manis (cumin seeds)
- halba (fenugreek) 
- soy sauce

- water
- cooking oil

Method :
1)  Heat oil in a wok or pot and fry jintan putih, jintan manis, halba, onions, garlic and curry leaves until aromatic.
2)  Then, add  canned sardines, tomatoes and enough water and stir.
3)  Add fish curry powder, soy sauce and salt.  Stir.
4)  Cover and lower the heat.  Allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
5)  Add vinegar or tamarind juice and mix well.
6)  Serve with rice or bread.
