Add 2 cups of water if you want more soup you can add more water. Let it boil in high flame for 5 minutes then add sugar,  hing, garam masala powder, silted green chilly ( while serving make sure to give one green chilly with each fish piece because some love to mash it and have it with rice and it add an extra taste).
