Canned Mackerel Varuval/ Dry Curry

Let me share with you all a very easy, anyone can make recipe which I made to match white rice and rasam. You only need few ingredients to make this dish and easily available. Now let's check how to make this.


1 can of mackerel
2 onion sliced
5 garlic sliced
1 tomato diced
3 bird eye chili sliced
2 tbsp thick tamarind juice
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp oyster mushroom sauce
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

In a pan, pour oil add onion, garlic and chili saute for a minute and add diced tomato, stir until tomato turn mushy. Now add the canned mackerel and break it to small pieces, do not add liquid from the canned mackerel or water, we are preparing this dish dry. 

Add curry powder to tamarind juice then pour into the mackerel and let cook until dry, once nearly dried add oyster mushroom sauce and salt. Cook until all the liquid in the dish totally dried, now my Canned Mackerel Varuval is ready to be served.
