Spicy Nethili Fry Recipe | Crispy And Spicy Anchovy Fry
I have already posted another version of nethili fry which was a very long time ago, it is a batter fried recipe and tastes yummy too. You can check the recipe here. If you are looking for a different version of fry using the same anchovies, with subtle flavors, you can check oats fish fry recipe. The following is a tasty, crispy and  spicy version and has a lot of flavors in it. I've included a video so that you find it more easier to follow the recipe. Also I have included a tip to make sure the masala layer doesn't come off or stick to the pan. Do check the video to learn more, it is a very short video and hence does not steal your time too.

  • Clean and wash anchovies well in water. 
  • Add all the ingredients to the anchovies, except oil. Sprinkle some water and mix well. 
  • Sprinkle water whenever needed and see that the masala sticks well to the fish pieces. It should not drip or fall off from the pieces. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  • Now place a wide pan on flame and pour enough oil to fry the fish pieces. 
  • After it gets hot, deep fry the marinated fish pieces. 
  • Fry both sides until reddish and crisp. 
  • Sometimes the masala would come off or stick to the pan, to avoid that check the video above for the tip.
