Mathi Fry / Sardines Fish Fry

We cook fish recipes frequently, at least thrice a week i can say... Its always our favorite recipe.
This is such a easy recipe and which is a great hit at my home...Love the crispy portion of outer layer of this recipe...
Beginners can try their hands confidently on this recipe, i bet you this is such a drool worthy recipe with minimum ingredients.


Sardines Fish - 15 nos.
Chilly powder - 1 & 1/2 tsp
Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Corn flour - 4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to fry.


Remove fish scales, tail and head portion and clean it with the mixture of salt and turmeric water.
I have not removed the head portion, instead i slited on the sides and removed the inner parts and cleaned it

Now take a large plate and add Chilly powder, pepper powder, salt and corn flour.
Mix it well and add the cleaned fish in the plate.
Dust the fish with the mixed powder ingredients ensure the fish should get coated with the mixture completely.
And refrigerate for 1/2 hr to 1 hour.
In a pan add enough oil to shallow fry
Shallow fry the fish till it turns cooked and to crispy texture.
Now its ready to serve.
