This is really simple and easy recipe.  Spicy Sardine  uses canned sardines in tomato sauce. With addition of onion, tomato and spices, it turns out really delicious. Sometimes I do prepare this dish on lazy weekend. Kindly adjust the chili used according to your preference. It is best served with hot steaming rice, capati or bread.


1 tall tin of sardine
2 tomatoes chopped
1 big onion sliced
3 green chili sliced
1-2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp ginger paste
4 garlic chopped
1 tbsp vinegar or lime juice
oil, salt


Heat the oil, fry the onion until slightly brown, add ginger and garlic, cook until fragrant.
Add tomatoes, cook until soft.
Add the chili, coriander powder, green chili and turmeric, you can add some amount of water if it is too dry.
Now add the sardine together with the sauce and vinegar, stir well and add salt to taste.
Ready to be served.
