Good Recipe..and for the one who got her dish ruined here is the mistake u made: Either you have used excess of Saunf which gives a sweet taste or you might have used less fish. As stated above in the ingredients,2 fishes should be used and i dont think so 1 tsp of saunf and kalonji can ruin the dish.This is something which seems not to be possible.Good luck

dear frnd,i dont understand how saunf and onion seeds (kalonji) gave a sour/sweet taste.The quantity of both the ingredients is perfect i.e.1tsp. Infact these are added only to add a achari flavour.I have already tried this recipe before posting and it turned to be amazing.
