Maasi Sambal Recipe - Dried Fish Sambal Recipe - Maasi Karuvadu Sambal Recipe

Hubby bought a packed of masi from super market. I am not so sure what to do with it. So i looked at the pack and adapted recipe from it. This is a quick dish to make, you can make it in under 15 mins. When i looked online about maasi i learned that it is smoked dried piece of tuna. In some places you will find a whole piece of it which you have to pound it. But i bought the pack which is already pounded. So you can buy whichever you like and make this.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Serves: 4 to 6


Maasi - 100 grams already pounded
Coconut - 1.5 cup grated
Oil - 1/4 cup
Garlic - 3 clove crushed
Curry leaves a handful
Onion or shallot - 1 large chopped
Salt to taste
Lemon juice - 2 tblspn


Mix coconut and masi together. Set aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add garlic and curry leaves.

Add in onion and cook that for a min.

Add the masi and coconut mix. Saute this on low heat for 10 mins or so, till the mix gets crispy.

Add salt to taste.

Now take it off the heat and add lemon juice. Mix well.

Serve with rice, appam or idiyappam.

I used this fresh masi, it is already pounded into flakes..If you only have a large piece of masi,
then pound it using a mortar and pestle

now take your other stuffs 
take coconut in a bowl

add maasi 
mix lightly and set aside

prepare other stuff

heat oil in a pan, add garlic and curry leaves

add onions

mix well

cook that down

add coconut and masi mix

stir fry

now cook this on low heat till the fish is crispy

the mix will darken a little

now take it off the heat and add in lemon juice

mix well



  1. what is to be added to make it spicy? Chillies or chilly powder??

    1. u can add chopped green chillies

    2. Add 4-5 green chillies and grind along with coconut

  2. Can i use it while travelling, i need to know how much days will it last ?
    If no then tell me any alternative to do so.

    1. roast the coconut really well till the moisture evaporates. so it will last for a while. It can stay good for 2 to 3 days
