Pomfret ghashi (gassi ) recipe - how to make papleta sol

Pomfret ghashi or fish ghassi recipe - This is  a very popular fish curry with thick gravy in the coastal part of Karnataka. I learned this ghashi from my mother. Thick gravy in this ghashi is very light with delicious tamarind and chilli flavour. The same recipe can be used for any kind of fish, be it  King Fish (Surmai, Iswan), Nogli (Lady Fish), Bangade (Mackerel), Shrimp (Prawns), Sardine (Toori, Tarle).  This ghashi goes well with steamed plain  rice or brown rice. What I love about this recipe, apart from the fact that it is so simple and practically easy. This ghashi actually tastes like real South Indian fresh fish cooked in thick gravy  when I make it.
