Wash the fish eggs properly in a bowl and drain the extra water.

In a wok, heat the oil till smoking and then cool it in sim
Add the smashed garlic clove and let it splutter

Add the potatoes and fry. Add turmeric, salt, chilli powder and cook for 5 - 10 minutues, till the potatoes are half cooked.
Add the tomatoes and stir fry again till the tomatoes are soft and pulpy.
Add the fish eggs in the wok and stir softly but quickly.
Add water and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
Garnish with chopped coriander and serve
Chilli powder or green chillies may be used as per taste
Garnishing depends upon individual choice. I did not have coriander so I served it as it was cooked.
Fish eggs , like normal eggs have a tendency to stick to the bottom. It is advised to keep stirring in between to avoid burning.
