Mandeli Curry (Golden Anchovy Curry)

Mandeli is a small golden spotted anchovy fish which taste really good. It's yummier when fried crisp but I love this garlic tempered curry with boiled rice.

  15-20 Mandeli Clean the fish, wash &  keep it aside.

Ingredients for grinding Masala

 5 Kashmiri Chilies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3 tsp coriander seeds
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 small lemon size tamarind ball
3/4 cup of desiccated coconut or Fresh scraped coconut
1 big flake of garlic
Grind the above with 1 & 1/2 cups of water to a fine paste.

2 tbsp oil

For Tempering 8-10 flakes of Garlic finely chopped.

In a Pot take 2 tbsp oil, once hot add the chopped garlic, brown it. Add the finely ground Masala, fry for 1-2 minutes. Add 1 & 1/2 cup of water, add salt to taste. Let the curry boil. Finally add the clean't fish & let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Serve with boiled rice.
