  until onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Add fish in single layer. Stir
  in mustard. Cook for about 1 minute per side. Stir in yogurt and
  salt. Simmer over low heat stirring constantly, for 3 or 4 minutes.
  Mix in steamed vegetables. Transfer fish into a heated serving
  platter. Spoon sauce and vegetables over. Sprinkle with lemon juice
  and mint leaves.
