Good news!!! and very true.The Chinese believe in serving of seafood brings them Prosperity. A whole fish served with the head pointing towards the guest of honour to assure him or her of good fortune; this practise is followed even today in some Provinces of China. Fishes that are cheap in India and what many poor people buy are the Sardines, Anchovy, and Red Mullet the best season for Fish in India is from the month of August to March . Sardines are rich in fat and proteins a lot of patience and care is required to clean and prepare fresh Sardines, so just try this simple fried Sardines, the name of the fish in Tamil is Mathi, here is MATHI PORICHITHU............

DO IT

-Wash the Fish thoroughly drain the water well and mix in the powders with required salt, lemon juice and ginger garlic paste, keep aside for 30 Min's.

-Since it has to be shallow fried take a pan heat required oil and place 3 sardines,fry on medium heat for a few minutes, turn gently fry the other side.
