Dried sprats are always nice with tomatoes. Instead of tomatoes you can add tamarind or goraka too. But tomatoes gives a nice sweet flavour to this curry. I like to add a bit of garlic in it too.
This is about 150 g washed and cleaned sprats. will serve 6 people. wash and clean the sprats well and prepare and cut one or two tomatoes, curry leaves, several cloves of garlic and some green chillies.
I used a teaspoon full chilli powder, 1/2 tsp curry powder, and 1/4 tea spoon turmeric powder and some fenugreek seeds with about 2 inches cinnamon.
Add all the ingredients in to a pot and add about a cup of water. Put it on the stove.
Cook the sprats until to the level of gravy you like and add about 3/4 cup of very thick coconut milk in to it. Cook uncovered about a minute or two. Check salt and switch off the stove.
Serve hot with rice.
