Method (Upper Assam style):

Deseed the tomatoes and cut it into small pieces. Put a little haldi powder over it and keep it aside. Chop the gourd into small pieces. Fry them with chopped onions (small quantity). Put them aside after the water is dried off from the pan. Heat a frying pan, put some mustard oil, allow the oil to be heated. Fry the fish pieces in the oil one by one. Frying need not be hard. Put the fried fish pieces on a paper napkin to drain excess oil. Put some mustard seeds in the hot oil and chopped onions in the frying pan and then put the cut tomato pieces into it. Saute it till the water in it evaporates. After the tomato becomes puree add water and the fried gourd and allow it to boil. Place the fried fish pieces in the pan with boiling tomato puree.
