Take a mud vessel(if possible), drop the fish pieces.Add tamarind paste and then coconut mixture. Add all the spices and powders, garlic,tomato and chillies. Mix it with the fish pieces well. Dont add salt and curry leaves now. Pour necessary water and place it on the stove. Once it starts boiling add salt and curry leaves. You can feel the sweet aroma emanating from the dish. Let it boil for five more minutes.Check the taste of the dish. If you find anything missing add it. Once its ready and has come to the correct consistency, switch off the stove.
Now saute the fenugreek seeds or mustard seeds in coconut oil. Add it to the cooked curry and serve.
