SARDINE MASALA FRY



Sardines fried with spicy masala make a perfect accompaniment with dal chawal/pulaos.
You can enjoy them like a snack too.

Ingredients:
Sardines ... 10 - 12
Lemon juice .. 2 tbsps
Sambar powder ... 1 tbsp (you can also use fish masala or any other)
Turmeric powder .. 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1 tsp
Cumin powder ......... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder .... 1/2 tsp (use more if you like very spicy)
Garlic paste ........... 1 tbsp
Salt .............. to taste
Rice flour .... 1-2 tbsp ( to dust)
Oil ............... to fry
Method:
1. Clean and slit the sardines lengthwise and remove the center bone carefully. Now-a-days you get ready-to-use ones in the stores.

2. Mix all the ingredients (except rice flour and oil) and rub on the sardine fillets. Marinate and set it aside for a few hours.

3. Before frying, sprinkle a little rice flour on the fish.

4. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them.



Makes a perfect side dish with dal chawal...

I have served it with Sai Bhaji & Khichni.

  11. Hi Shobha, was wondering what happened to you. I usually receive lot of entries from you and was surprised you did not share any yet.

    I usually grill whole sardines. This looks interesting. How did you manage to remove the bone and fillet the fish? Only a few stores here carry fresh sardines and they usually clean and give. Next time will ask them to fillet it for me.

    Thanks for linking it to seafood feast.
