  2. Heat a large pan over high heat, add some canola oil, and fry the salmon fillets until both sides are lightly browned while ensuring not to cook it through entirely. Remove the salmon from the pan and set aside.

    In the same pan, add the chopped spring onions, ginger paste, and garlic paste, and stir-fry over medium-high heat. Then add the cherry tomatoes and eggplant, and continue frying until lightly charred.

  3. Reduce the heat and gently press down on the tomatoes with a potato masher to break them up into chunks. Add the tomato paste, remaining curry powder, coriander, and cumin powder. Stir-fry for another minute, then pour in the water and mix well. If you prefer a thinner curry, you may add more water.

  4. Add the sliced okra to the pan and cover it with a lid to let it simmer on low heat for 3 minutes or until you’re happy with the thickness of the curry.

    Add a teaspoon of butter and salt to taste. Then add the salmon fillets to the pan, ensuring they are fully submerged in the curry, and simmer for another minute over low heat with the lid on.
