In Goa, we get variety of sea fish and there are number of fish recipes. ‘Talle Sukke’ also known as Tallyache sukhe meaning sardines dry masala is another recipe made with sardines which my Mom taught me during my trip to Goa in October. It turns very good and has a tangy spicy taste. The tanginess comes from the kokum petals and tamarind that is added to this tallyanche sukhe recipe. Many people don’t like the smell of sardines, so just clean them and apply salt. Keep them aside for 15 Min’s and then wash again. This ensures that the smell goes off.
Sardines have a number of health benefits. They promote hearth and bone health. They are rich in proteins and make the immune system strong. Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B-12 and are highly recommended for pregnant and lactating women.
