Karuvadu Varuval/ Salted Fish Fry

Ingredients:
200g of salted fish (soaked in hot water for 30 minutes if salty)
2 tbsp of chilli paste
3 onions (sliced)
1 tsp of chilli sauce
2 cups of water
Oil to fry

Drain the salted fish and shallow fry until golden and keep aside. Blend chili paste and 2 sliced onions with 1 cup of water. Heat oil and fry balance of the sliced onions until translucent then pour the blended paste and balance 1 cup of water until, boil this until the raw smell is gone and sambal thickens, now add in the chilli sauce and mix well. Add the fried salted fish and pour slightly more oil so that the paste will be really cooked and color turns darker just like in the picture above. You can remove the excess oil after cooking, the sambal should completely cover the salted fish until then you have to let the gravy thicken. Now our Karuvadu Varuval is ready to be served.


I have used salted shark fish/sura

Do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
