Cut thalanabatu and remove the seeds. heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium high heat for about 1 minute and when oil is hot add onion, garlic and curry leaves into the sauce pan. Add mustard seeds and stir. Then add a cinnamon stick to the mix. Add the thalanabatu and fry about 2 minutes while stirring regularly. Now add curry powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder, fenugreek, green chilli and Maldives’ fish into the pan then mix well all together & let it cook for about further 2 minutes.
