Sardine comes very handy when there's nothing left in the fridge to cook. We normally keep a few tins for 'emergencies'. Here's a simple sardine recipe!
Sardine - 1 big tin
Onions (sliced) - 1
Garlic (chopped) - 3 cloves
Dried chillies (cut into 1-inch lengths) - 3
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Chili powder - 2 tbsp
Tamarind juice - 1/4 cup
Salt and pepper to taste
Pour out the sardines onto a plate and remove the middle bones.
Heat some oil and saute onions, garlic, dried chillies and curry leaves until fragrant.
Add chili powder and tamarind juice. Keep stirring. Add a little water if necessary.
Put in the sardines and break them up a little.
Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 5-10 minutes.
Dish out and serve.
