Spicy Mathi Fry / Sardine Fry is so simple to make, So I am categorizing this as a bachelor’s special 🙂
One of the best combinations with Mathi Fry is Puttu which is steamed rice cakes. All we need to do is marinate the fish with masala and fry. Adding rice flour will make the fish fry crispy. Watch the cooking video at: CookeryShow
I am making Puttu, that is steamed rice cakes also along with fish fry. You can see a wet cloth wrapped down the Puttu steamer. This is a tip that helps steam to get captured inside the steamer. Click here for Puttu Recipe
