Sardines / Malabar Mathi fish fry / சாளை / மத்தி மீன் வறுவல்

sardines medium size - 9
pepper powder - 1 tsp or more
chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
lime juice - optional
oil - 1-2 tbsp
salt - to taste.

Steps to follow:
Clean the fish, wash thoroughly, slit  and  drain it. 
In a plate add all the ingredients except oil, add some water and make a paste.
Apply to all fishes and keep aside for 1 hour.

 Heat oil in a non stick pan fry the fish pieces both sides till crisp.
 Drain excess oil and serve with rice or as a starter.
 Here I added more pepper powder and less chilli powder and it tastes awesome.
