I'm Back with Dry Nethli(Anchovies) Varuval

Hello Everyone..... I am back:)

I was blessed with a baby girl on June 16th. Her name is THASWIKA and we were very happy to have her after 6 years of marriage.

But unfortunately, she had to undergo major heart surgery on her 4th day of her birth, as she was diagnosed with Coarctation of Aorta.

By GOD's grace and everybody's prayers she is improving now. Enjoying every single moment with her now :)

Coming back to cooking, here's a very simple dish to go.....

Dry Nethli (Anchovies) fish - 100 gms
Chilli powder - 1 tablespoon
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tablespoons

Boil 2 cups of water. Switch off and add turmeric powder to it. Soak dryfish in it and allow it for 20-30 minutes.

Gently wash it 3-4 times with cold water and drain water completely.

Mix it well with chilli powder and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Once it is hot, add fish and fry well.

Once they are half cooked, add salt to taste and fry for 5-10 minutes until they are crispy.

Goes well with hot sambar rice.

Cooking time : 15-20 minutes
Serves 2-3 persons
