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.
