Dried Sardine Fry / Karuvadu Fry / Dry Fish Fry


This is my first ever recipe with dried fish, that i have cooked. Recently discovered that hubby loves fish in any form, even if it is dried. Couple weeks back he bought these packet of dried fish for me to cook. I have never cooked with it before, so decided to fry it. 

Couple of things you should remember while dealing with dried fish is, you should clean it really really well and also you should be very careful while adding salt. Since the fish is salted already i went easy on the salt. As a last touch i sauted some onions, curry leaves in the fried oil and squeeze some lemon juice in. Hubby loved it a lot.


Preparation Time : 25 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Serves - 2 to 3

Ingredients:

Dried Fish ( Any Fish) - 12
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt a pinch 
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - half a lemon + 1 tblspn
Onion - 1 sliced
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Oil for shallow frying

Method:

Take the dry fish and soak them in water for 20 mins. Now clean them well to remove excess salt and dirt.

Mix that with chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt, lemon juice.

Heat oil and add in the fish. Fry it for 5 mins on either side till it is cooked and golden.

Now remove them to a plate. In the remaining oil, add in onions, curry leaves and saute for a min.

Squeeze in 1 tblspn of lemon juice and mix well.

Spoon this over the fried fish and serve with rice.
