Very Tasty Fish Pickle

You might be wondering why my title reads very tasty.... everybody knows fish pickle is very tasty... well, I promise you this pickle is tastier than all other tasty recipes of fish pickle. Last month, I was chatting with a friend of mine, Aysha and she, after reading my prawns pickle recipe(where Ive mentioned Dhanya's fish pickle) told me that she still remembers Dhanya's fish pickle- so tasty!!!! I immediately wanted to make it and I mailed Dhanya to ask her for the recipe..but I guess her e-mail id changed and I searched all the networking sites for her... No she isnt registered anywhere!!! : (  But suddenly I remembered once my eldest sister-in-law made prawns pickle which was very tasty and that time I had asked her how she made it, and she told me it is a thick onion tomato based gravy.... which got me interested and asked her the whole recipe.. but till date I hadnt tried it out... but when I made it, it tasted exactly like Dhanya's fish pickle... EUREKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
