Sardine fish is highly beneficial to our health. It contains omega fatty acid and also we can use this fish on daily basis. It helps to reduce heart diseases and also increases immunity power. It contains a lot of proteins which is very beneficial to human body. Sardine fish is very tasty and everyone likes to have this fish. Here, I am showing very tasty and variety fish fry. Its main specialty is that I have used bird's eye chilli to marinate this fish fry. Bird's eye chillies also have a lot of health benefits and so many people aware about this. This chilli will be available in almost all houses and it is very costly item in markets. This fry will have very special and attractive taste and it is completely variety fish fry. It has a mixed smell of garlic, curry leaves and birds eye chillies. To get more taste I have mixed fish in coconut milk. It is completely a traditional fish fry and we can use it as a side dish with hot rice, mashed tapioca and mashed jackfruit for lunch and dinner. I have used pasted ingredients to marinate fish to get more taste. To get complete taste of bird's eye chilli I haven't used any other chillies to this fish fry. I like this fish fry very much and also my family members like this fry to have with rice. It is very spicy dish and completely Kerala style traditional recipe. We have to spend more time to clean this fish but it doesn't matter because its taste is that much good. Usually we are making this fry in houses and restaurants in different ways but its taste is entirely different from that. I have used very limited ingredients to make this special fish fry. It is very crispy fry so children will like this fry very much. Sardine fish is available in all season and its price is less compared to other fishes. These both main ingredients are very healthy so we need not to worry about our health.
