Stir the lemon juice and 1 tsp salt into the fish pieces and set aside. Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the whole spices and curry leaves, cook for 3-4 mins, then add the onions. Fry until the onions are soft, then add the chillies, ginger and garlic. Tip in the tomatoes and the remaining spices and cook, uncovered, on a low heat for about 5-8 mins. Stir frequently to prevent the spices sticking and burning.
Pour 150ml water into the pan, bring to a simmer, then add the fish. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 mins more. Serve with rice.
