  2. Simmer uncovered 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the fish and simmer uncovered 10 to 15 more minutes or until the fish turns opaque and just flakes when tested with a fork.

My husband and I did not care for this recipe much. It tasted like fish drowned in condiments. If I made this recipe again, I would add more veggies and reduce the amount of ketchup by at least half.

Dear Recipe Fairy, I have to say that this was very very different from any fish in gravy recipe that I have had. And we all loved it for precisely that reason. Used fresh tomatoes and a fish we call ravas Served with steamed rice and a cabbage vegetable. I paid a bomb for the fish(the bird flu has caused people to switch to fish and no takers for chicken. There has not been a single case in India so I don't know why the reaction) but Oh yes! it was worth it. Thanks a lot for this wonderful addition to my repertoire. :) Fay
