It is important to fry the dry Mackerel on the tawa so as to remove the raw fish taste.
5-6 dry mackerel
4 tablespoon grated coconut
1 tablespoon turmeric powder
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoon tamarind paste
1 tablespoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Soak the dry mackerel in water for 4 hrs.
After 4 hrs scrap the skin and cut them into small 1/2 inch pieces carefully by separating the fish bones. This works better if done by hand.
Fry the dry mackerel pieces on tawa for 2 minutes and let it cool down.
Chop the onion into small pieces. Add the grated coconut, turmeric and chilly powder to this. Now add the small fried dry mackerel pieces. To this add the tamarind paste.
Mix everything properly.
Add salt to taste.
Serve this with Rice, Fish Curry and fried fish 🙂
