Wish all of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.  After a long holiday I am back again to share my 1st recipe of 2019. Hope all of you will like it and share for the benefit of your friends and relatives.  I have chosen sardine fish here, you can select any fish of your like.


  1. Cleaned Sardine – 9
  2. Chilli Powder – ½ Tea-spoon
  3. Turmeric Powder – ½ Tea-spoon
  4. Pepper Powder – 1 Tea-spoon
  5. Ginger – 1/2 inch piece
  6. Garlic – 4 cloves
  7. Curry leaves – 3 leaves
  8. Small Onion – 3
  9. Lemon juice – 1 Tea-spoon
  10. Salt – To taste
  11. Coconut Oil – 1 Table-spoon
  12. Rice Flour – 2 Table-spoons


20190102_212802Wash the sardine well with some salt and turmeric powder (take separate salt and turmeric other than the quantity mentioned in ingredients).  Make 3 or 4 cuts on both the sides of each fish.  Mix salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and lime and apply on the sardine fish, keep it aside covered with a lid. Now grind ginger, onion, garlic, curry leaves and  pepper powder into a smooth paste adding very little or no water. Apply this paste to the fish as well and keep for 15 to 30 minutes, so that the masala will seep into the fish.

Once ready roll each fish in the rice flour and keep.

Pour oil in a pan and heat it. If the sardine has lots of fat, no need to pour oil (in some seasons sardines are filled with fat). Place the fish for frying, if you want to add some curry leaves with the fish, can do so to get a good flavor.  When one side gets fried well turn the other side and fry till it is crispy.  Then serve the fry with rice or any other dish of your choice.



I am dashing to enjoy it with some fried rice.  So bye for now, wish all of you would try to follow this recipe and enjoy this fish fry like me. Have an awesome year ahead!
