Canned Sardine fish curry

I din't eat this can sardine since i migrated to Australia.
You can actually easily buy can sardine from any chinese store.
But since it is also easy to get fresh sardines in any fish market so i always go for the fresh one.
I love the way Sonia cook her canned sardines.
I purposely bought one 425g can sardine to have a go with this special dish.
It is really yummy! My husband loves it so much.
My garden have plenty of cherry tomatoes.
I just get some fresh tomatoes to add in the sardines and
in order to have more sauce i also add in a small can of diced tomato.
So that I can enjoy the dipping of bread with the sauce as recommended by Sonia.
Thanks Sonia for her kind sharing.
