Sardine Dry Fish Fry


Usually when it comes to Dry fish, I love it. When it comes to sardine Dry fish, I love it a lot. My mom use to accompany this Sardine Dry Fish stir-fry with Dal fry and steamed rice. I and my grand fa love this combination a lot and will say that everyone would love this a lot. But unlike other Dry Fish, cleaning of this sardine takes little time. Let me share the cleaning tips and the recipe…

Cleaning of Sardine Dry Fish: Heat the tawa or pan or kadhai, now place the sardine dry fish in the vessel, and swap the sides for every 2 mins. The skin of the sardine dry fish gets sticked to the vessel, then remove the sardine dry fish.
