Anchovies Fritters, a Recent additon to our regular menu absolutely this is my MIL’s recipe.. couple of years back they were in Tutucorin for few days, there one of her neighbour shared this yummiest recipe, I’m crazy over this fish.. this kind of fritters are ready to eat in anytime here..
To be honest there was few attempt with the same recipe earlier, where i noted through phone and ended with ultra flop.. To the other end i love this crispiest fish, when my MIL was here i asked her to explain, she was giving direction and i was in the mission to execute, there she found my mistake, yes i added more water to mix the masala, have pointed down clearly with my know details, Please go through with the recipe instruction and note.. Hope my Post will give a proper guide about the recipe, DO try and let me know how it was..
Anchovies Fritters/Netholli Meen Varuval
|நெத்தலி மீன்/Anchovies||250 gms|
|Chilli Powder||1.5 tsp|
|Turmeric Powder||1/2 tsp|
|Coriander Powder||1 tsp|
|Jeera Powder||1/2 tsp|
|Corn Flour||2-3 tsp|
- Do not add more water to mix the masala, should be very careful in adding water to mix the masala with fish, if water is more, while frying oil will splash every where and fritters will be more oily..
- Adding more corn flour will be crispier to the fritter, here i added corn flour to just coat the fish..
- For variations you can Lime juice, ginger Garlic paste, Fennel powder, Pepper Powder, for different flavour and taste, here i followed a very simple method which should be easy for every readers, even the jeera powder was my addition, if you don’t have in your pantry then don’t mind quit it, mainly you need hotness from chill powder and the crispness from Cron flour..
