This is the first dish which brought some applause after I started cooking.. :) I was zero in cooking when I prepared this.I had prepared few dishes like semiya payasam, vegetable cutlet, omelet and mango pachadi. Since my umma was with me I had nothing to worry with her help. But after marriage I tried to learn from many people who cook well. And this one I prepared my self using the remaining tamarind pulp which is used for preparing fish curry. This simple masala is great for frying ayala / mackerel and mathi / chala / sardines.
Ingredients and preparation
Shallots /red onions / chuvannulli 6
fennel seeds 1/4 tsp
chilli powder 3 tsps or as desired
turmeric powder 1 tsp
tamarind paste / puli 1 tsp
oil for frying
Grind shallots / chuvannulli and fennel seeds together. Mix with the powders and salt. Marinate fish in this.Do shallow fry.
