Add 3 tbsp of water and mix.

Now add kalonji and after a few seconds later, put in the red chillies.
As soon as they darken a bit, put in the bay leaves.
When the bay leaves start to darken, put in the onion, stir and fry the onion at low heat.
Add the spice paste. Stir and fry it for about 1 minute.
Now put in the fish in a single layer in a pan with 1 cup of water.
Lay the green chillies over the fish.
Simmer over a medium heat for 2 minutes.
Spoon the sauce over the fish pieces, cover it and cook the fish for 10-15 minutes.
