Small Sardines – 5 -7 nos
Cumin powder – a pinch
Onion Tomato chutney
Flour – to coat the fish
Marinate the sardines with cumin powder,salt and onion tomato chutney for 30 minutes.Then coat the marinated sardines in flour and pepper. Deep fry and serve.
How I came up with this recipe:
I had some leftover chutney used as side dish for dosas.So an idea formed in my mind to marinate the sardines in it. Also reminds me of the Moroccan recipe ‘floured and fried sardines stuffed with chermoula’.
