1/2 ts Ground cumin

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add the onion and cook until richly browned, about 20 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and jalape¤o and cook for 2 more minutes. Stir in the cumin and turmeric, followed by the broth, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, 7 to 9 minutes to develop a thick sauce. Add the sugar and salt, then gently stir in the fish. Simmer, covered, until the fish is just opaque through (cut into one piece to test), 8 to 12 minutes longer. Gently stir in the tamarind mixture.
