    Onions ad many as disired this onions have to cove the fish . I normally use 8 to 10 huge onions sliced. Fry onions in oil about 1/2 cut to a cup of oil. Add 6x bayleave, 20 black pepper corns and 2 to 3 table spoons of Cathrights Curry powder . then braise until soft. ADD 1/2 TO Cup of White Vinegar and 1/2 Cup sugar. Lastly add some Mrs Bolls Fruit Chutney or other about 3 tables spoons. Give it about 15 min to boil on high heat then switch off and allow to cool.
