Light in colour. Then add Aubergine. Braise for 7 mins. Then add all spices. And spring onion. Add 1/2 cup water and cook till thick.
Add coconut milk or coconut powder mix. Stir well. Then place the fish on top , spoon the sauce over the fish. Do not break the fish. Sprinkle with dhania and close the lid. Poach till sauce is thick and fish is done about 7/8 mins on a low heat.
Serve wih basmatic rice, mango salsa.
Spices can be adjusted in the recipe to your taste buds. Masala one can purchase at a Spice shop. I used proper Indian Fish Masala. Its a bit spicey. So adjust it.

Additional notes:  Fish masala I used is proper Indian Masala. One can get it at a Spice shop, not a supermarket. And Thank you Esme Slabbert. The spices used, all cooks can adjust the amount to their preference and taste buds. The Indian Fish Masala is spicey.
