TRH Irene's Sugar Beans & Dry Fish (Snoek) Curry

Boil Dry Fish twice for 2 mins a time & discard the water after each boil (this is to get rid of access salt).
Fry the dry fish until done to your satisfaction.

Add 1/4 tsp hing (aids with digesting gaseous foods),
½tsp of jeera seeds and 1 bay leaf.
Add 1 tsp tumeric,
1 tsp dhania jeera powder,
1 tsp ginger and garlic paste,
