Sardines with Very Less Oil

Sardines with very less oil.

You Need:

  • Sardines.
  • Coriander leaves and stems.
  • Garlic.
  • Mustard oil.
  • Black Pepper.
  • Lemon Juice.
  • Salt.

This recipe is simple and uses a method I call as cold frying.

In a pestle pound together the garlic, black pepper, salt and lemon juice. Add in a tablespoon of mustard oil. Mix it well and rub this all of the the fish. Leave aside for ten-fifteen minutes.

Take a heavy bottom fry pan. Spread out the fish and all its marinade on it. Then keep it on the stove and cook on low heat for about 8 mins. The combination of lemon juice and mustard oil would have made a very thick slurry kinda paste.

This will allow the fish to cook without sticking to the pan. When the fish is almost cooked, increase the heat and get just a lil bit of browning on the fish.

Remove the fish and masala as well.
