Malaysian Indian (Mamak style) Curry Fish Recipe (Salmon fish head & Cod fillet)

This is my first attempt to imitate mamak style fish head curry. What I like about this is it has a perfect blend of sourish, sweetish and spiciness. The other thing is that the whole recipe takes less than 30 minutes to cook (excluding preparation time but overall it takes less than 45 minutes).
