Fish curry with lasia spinosa (chengmora)

Chengmora xaak is yet another green leafy vegetable found in Assam. Its english name is Lasia spinosa. Its taste is little bitter and it's little itchy. But after adding tomatoes or any other souring agent its bitterness and itchyness will disappear. Fish curry with lasia spinosa (chengmora)  is a very tasty fish curry recipe.  Chengmora is not widely available and only during summer it is found. So once or twice a year only we got the chance to eat this tasty vegetable. Last sunday I brought a bunch of chengmora xaak from the market and made this lovely fish curry. Any kind of fish can be used in making this curry, either big or small fish or raw or dry fish. Here I am using big fish pieces. As Assamese cuisine is less spicy cuisine, this fish recipe is a spiceless fish curry and very healthy too. Here is the recipe-
